Established in 1805, Abyssinian Baptist Church is one of the five oldest African-American Baptist churches in the United States, although it did not move to its famous Harlem location until Rev. Dr. Adam Clayton Powell became the church's leader in the early 20th century. In We've Come This Far: A Photographic Journal, Robert Gore uses memorable black-and-white photos to tell the congregation's history. Textual highlights include Gore's essay on ""Spiritual Rebuilding Time"" and Rev. Jesse Jackson's inspiring tribute to Rev. Dr. Samuel DeWitt Proctor, who served as minister of the church from 1972 to 1989. ( June)
