First (Colored) Baptist Church

A hub of civil rights activities in the early 1960s, this church was a host for the Student Nonviolent Coordination Committee and was the first congregation to open its doors for meetings and activities of the Dallas County Voters League. In 1964, meetings were held here and Brown Chapel to plan the mass demonstrations which culminated in the Selma-to-Montgomery March in 1965.
