The African Methodist Episcopal Church is an independent denomination founded by black people. The main reason why this denomination was established was as a result of the segregation against black that existed in the Methodist Episcopal Church in the late 1700s and early 1800s. To escape this discrimination and make the church a welcoming place for all races, the AME was founded and it became the first church established for this reason and not theological distinctions. Richard Allen, a black preacher of the Christian gospel was permitted to minister only to black congregations. Also, blacks sat in different galleries when their population increased. With this, Richard Allen led a group to form a Methodist church for all races.
