Obamas attend Easter service at historic black baptist church

Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria VA was founded in April 1803. During 1818 the Colored Baptist Society of Alexandria, now known as the African Baptist Society, rented the property  for many years and finally purchased the church September 1842. Today the church has been a driving force in education and the advancement of women.
