Saved and Sanctified
Deidre Crumbley, associate professor of Africana Studies, describes the social institution of the storefront church in her new book, "Saved and Sanctified: The Rise of a Storefront Church in Great Migration Philadelphia." The community gathering place that still flourishes today first emerged during the early 20th century as millions of southern blacks moved north to escape the violent racism of the Jim Crow South and to find employment in urban centers.
