Bethel A.M.E. Church has been the cornerstone of the African American community in West Chester for 200 years. Among its members were leading business people, the teachers of Gay Street School who molded a generation of leaders, and civil rights leaders like Bayard Rustin. Here is a photo probably taken on the 150th anniversary of the church.  Can you identify any of the people pictured? The photo archives appreciates your assistance. Please email any information you have to Pamela Powell, photo archivist at ppowell@chestercohistorical.org
