Described as the best-educated minister in all of Memphis in 1880 was a black man, the Rev. Benjamin A. Imes, who was a noted city leader. Imes held two degrees from Oberlin College and was involved with an influential group that pushed for the integration of public facilities in Memphis during the late 19th century. The group met with its demise during the race riots of the 1880s. Imes was a minister of Second Congregational Church, founded in 1868.
