Biographical/Historical Note

Union African Methodist Episcopal Church (A.M.E.), Little Rock, Arkansas, was established in 1906 after a merger of Brown Memorial and Centennial A.M.E. churches. Both Brown and Centennial A.M.E. churches had been in existence since the 1890s. After the merger, the name changed to Union, and the site for a new building was purchased. The cornerstone of the new church at Wright Avenue and Pulaski Street was laid in 1911 under the pastorate of Reverend G.B. Ashford. During the 1960s, the church was home to several civil rights activists and other notable members of the African American community in Little Rock.
