Previously, I blogged about one of my intellectual and spiritual ancestors Henry McNeal Turner, an early and influential Bishop in the African Methodist Church. He joins four other great men as the AME Church’s Fours Horsemen. The Four Horsemen are considered pioneers of the church and were instrumental in its development. The other three horsemen include the church’s founder and first Bishop Richard Allen, the church’s fourth Bishop William Paul Quinn, and Daniel Payne AME church’s sixth Bishop.
