A Children's Book On Bishop Richard Allen: A Nonviolent Journey

from 17.00

Argrow “Kit” Evans-Ford a Pace e Bene nonviolence speaker and trainer is the author of the new children’s book and curriculum on Bishop Richard Allen, founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME).  Kit’s introduction states,

“A few years ago I was looking through my Grandma Argrow’s Bible and a brochure of Richard Allen fell out.   It talked about his legacy.  I thought, ‘What was it about Bishop Richard Allen that caused my grandmother to hold him as an inspiring example?’  She was a local deacon in the AME Church and had such a compassionate heart.  She taught me to love God and others.

I researched and saw that his life had modeled something so powerful for my grandmother.  In turn she had modeled these same qualities for our family:  freedom, faith, family, education, nonviolence, courage, and love.  I thought it necessary for me to write, A Children’s Book on Richard Allen: A Nonviolent Journey, so all children can understand the life and legacy of such an important person in the AME Church and our history.

I pray this story of hope inspires you!

-Argrow “Kit” Evans-Ford
