LONDON FERRELL, AFRICAN AMERICAN BAPTIST PASTOR


      "London Ferrill was a remarkable man. He was descended from a royal family in Africa, born a slave in Virginia, and was without scholastic training. Yet, Dr. William Pratt [Pastor of FBC, Lexington, KY] says of him: 'He had the manner of authority and command, and was the most thorough disciplinarian I ever saw. . . .'
     His moral courage was dauntless, and his Christian integrity unwavering." - Spencer
