Careful control of the black man’s religious expression was maintained by keeping him in constant view during his religious exercise. To allow the Negro the right of assembly for any reason, created a potential for insurrection and rebellion. For this reason, a lave gallery was an important feature of the architectural design of a pioneer not be denied freedom of assembly and the choice of religious expression.
The organization of Arnett Chapel A.M.E. Church dates back to the early period of reconstruction to the dark and dismal days of involuntary servitude, to bondage. Emerging from the days of involuntary servitude, to bondage.
