Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, November 23, 2014

Weekly Calendar

The City of Birmingham was chartered December 19, 1871, principally by industrialist who came searching for economic opportunities in what became known as the “Magic City.”  Quick growth spawned by the steel industry, persons from other parts of the state gravitated toward Birmingham looking for employment opportunities.  Those opportunities were found in the burgeoning foundries and steel plants such as Sloss Furnace.

 As the city grew, supporting institutions were organized and established.  For the African American community, a key part of their migration to Birmingham and their survival in the midst of Jim Crow segregation was the creation of congregations supporting their spiritual needs.
