This is our Call! This is our Birthright!

Oral histories of life in Northside ring with reference to the “pillars of this community”: church, family, school.  The church is repeatedly hailed as a place of gathering, a place of freedom, a place of renewed faith, and consequently a place of community. The churches pictured here served as a hub for civil rights action and continue to enrich and enliven hundreds of lives as pillars in this community.
