Church Congregations in Harlem - the 1930's

from His Eye Is On the Sparrow, page 230:

More people live in one crowded Harlem block than you'll find in Lexington, Mississippi. We went there to see Eddie's sister, Ireana, who is an official of the Saints' Revival School of the Holiness Church. Ireana had the kids in her school travel around and sing in various churches. Her girls were all sweet, virginal children, very innocent, and they could sing the heavy heart right out of you.
