    The Chattahoochee area and northwestern Gadsden have enjoyed an African Methodist Episcopal (AME) presence almost since the denomination put down its roots in the county following the Civil War’s end in 1865.

    A diversity of influences radiated outward to the state and nation from Gadsden County’s AME churches in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The lives and experiences of Alexander C. Lightbourne and Mary Zeigler Lightbourne offer excellent cases on point.

    Gadsden County’s pioneer African Methodist congregations produced or fostered a striking number of men and women who not only touched the community but also the state and nation. Their impacts ranged from pastoral to political, academic to artistic.

    It seems we churchgoers are a cranky bunch when we’re hungry, and that’s putting it politely.

    Their consensus of us is that we’re demanding and rude. We sit in large groups and stay longer than we should, discussing the morning’s sermon (or latest church gossip), commenting on the heathens at the nearby table drinking Bloody Marys.
