March 5th, 1836: Society of Second Baptist Church of Detroit

On this day in 1836, thirteen former slaves sign a petition to organize the Society of Second Baptist Church of Detroit.

They also elect the Rev. William Charles Monroe as their pastor. Their action is significant: Second Baptist Church will become
Michigan’s first African-American home of worship.
