Description: 

"This is where Christ say, 'I have a desire to eat the Last Passover before I suffer.'

"In the dark days of slavery we black Methodists all done stuff together. We have never been separated in our church. We had to sit in the balcony, but we come down to take the sacrament after the white folks. But we pulled out, formed the A.M.E. Zion church. When we go into the house of God, salvation is free.
