Meal at Embry AME Church


Communal meals are a traditional part of celebrations at Lakeland’s churches. Members of Embry A.M.E. Church have lunch in their parish hall following a Sunday service in 1943. Among those at the table are the pastor, Rev. Jesse A. Williams (wearing the collar), and his wife, seated to his right; and former pastor Rev. Herman R. Curtis and his wife (far side of the table, first and second from the left). At the head of the table to the right is Leon Robinson, a longtime church member and trustee.
