This book concludes by discussing the Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Rochester, New York, which is considered black Rochester's grandest edifice. Among its outstanding features were four stained-glass windows, illustrating the causes to which Zionites had devoted themselves during the denomination's 120-year history. It was, however, the face of a white woman in the fourth window—that of Susan B. Anthony—that might have caused the casual visitor to Memorial Church to pause. Anthony was well known as a longtime Rochester resident and a zealous advocate of women's rights. This tribute to Anthony's life and work was made possible through the efforts of Rochester resident Hester Jeffrey and her associates in the Susan B. Anthony Club, one of the hundreds of African American women's clubs of the early twentieth century.
