Talk:African Methodist Episcopal Church
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the African Methodist Episcopal Church article.|
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Not sure if permission was given or the original writer knew it, but much of the content on the African Methodist Episcopal Church is a direct copy of the AME website. Specifically:
A few bits of new information are interspersed, but it really seems like a cut-and-paste job.
I don't know enough to revise it and it seems sad to delete it, so I'm noting the discrepancy here.

Founding of the Church
This article indicates the AME Church was founded in 1793. The Wiki piece re Richard Allen (reverend) gives a date of 1816 as the founding date. The confusion needs to be addressed by someone more knowledgeable than I --Dumarest 12:59, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
Huge source available online
There is an electronic edition of the "Centennial Encyclopaedia of the African Methodist Episcopal Church Containing Principally the Biographies of the Men and Women, Both Ministers and Laymen, Whose Labors during a Hundred Years, Helped Make the A. M. E. Church What It Is; Also Short Historical Sketches of Annual Conferences, Educational Institutions, General Departments, Missionary Societies of the A. M. E. Church, and General Information about African Methodism and the Christian Church in General; Being a Literary Contribution to the Celebration of the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Formation of the African Methodist Episcopal Church Denomination by Richard Allen and others, at Philadelphia, Penna., in 1816", Richard R. Wright, Editor, published in 1916, available at this location. It is a wonderful source if you are working on a biography of anyone who was prominent in the denomination through 1916.

In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

Proposed Methodist work group
There is now a proposal for a WikiProject group, possibly initially a subproject of Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity, to deal with articles relating to the Methodist churches at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals#Methodism. Anyone interested in taking part in such a group should indicate their interest there. Thank you. John Carter (talk) 15:24, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

African Methodist Episcopal Church for only black people
Since the African Methodist Episcopal Church; I thought that it would only be for black people. Is it true? Ashbeckjonathan 19:53, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
