“Us’d go to meetin’ to de Antioch Church some Sundays. Us’d go to de
house and git a pass. When us’d pass by the patterole, us jes’ hold up
our pass and den us’d go on. Dar was a ’vidin’ ’twixt de niggers and de
white folks. De white preacher’d preach; den de colored man. Us’d stay
at church most all day. When we didn’ go to church, us’d git together in
the quarters and have preachin’ and singin’ amongst ourselves.”
