    The tour took visitors inside churches in East Liberty, Bethel Park, and the North Side.

    Visitors learned about events and churches that shaped local history while exploring the works of black contemporary artists. 

    For many, the church has brought the entire community together for generations. 

    "We needed a place to worship and be together and understand what our beliefs were, and what we wanted for our children for the future,” Janice Brown from Bethel AME Church said.
