In late August of 1793, leading members of the free African and white communities joined in a banquet to celebrate the roof raising of the first African church in Philadelphia. The dinner was in two parts, Dr. Benjamin Rush explained, "six of the most respectable of the white company" served dinner for the men and women of African descent. "May African churches everywhere soon succeed..." was Dr. Rush's heartfelt toast as the white donors and workers then ate, served by the African participants.
