The History of their Story

Historical Roots Of AfricaTown Church - AfricaTown, Alabama

Step into the past with us at Union Missionary Baptist Church, where the stories of our ancestors paint a vivid picture of resilience and hope.

In every corner of our church, you’ll find echoes of the past reminders of the struggles and triumphs of those who came before us. From old photographs to cherished keepsakes, each holds a piece of history that speaks volumes.

These stories tell of brave souls who, despite facing unimaginable hardships as slaves in Mobile, found the strength to build new lives for themselves. Their legacy lives on in the marks they left behind  in the engravings etched into stone, the homes they built, and the memories they shared.

As we reflect on their journeys, we’re reminded of the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity and leave a lasting impact on the world. Their stories inspire us to strive for a future where justice, equality, and compassion reign supreme.

Join us as we honor their memory and celebrate the enduring legacy of resilience that continues to shape our community.
