Summary

Though the genesis of African Methodism lay in the founding of the Free African Society in 1787, the denomination, organized in 1816, maintained an historical consciousness about its significance as a religious body for the black Atlantic. Since 1848, when Daniel A. Payne was elected as the first historiographer, AMEs have sustained this office as the official guardian of the church’s institutional memory. Additionally, regular commemorations of the birth of Richard Allen, the marking of the chronological milestones of annual and General Conferences, and special ceremonies for succeeding cohorts of centennial congregations routinely highlighted the AME ecclesiastical calendar.
