The “Religious Department” was a regular front page feature of the New Orleans Tribune, America’s first Black daily. Reverend Dove (St. James Chapel A.M.E Church) and Reverend McCary (Urquhart Street A.M.E. Church) believed “a religious and political union of our people is essential to our present and future welfare.” The column was typically followed by “Religious Intelligence” which listed “Devine services of all colored churches.”
