Chapter 5, “They Were All Filled With the Holy Ghost!,” emphasizes the role of African American religious institutions, focusing primarily on the early years of the Azusa Street Revival, 1906 – 1908, a multiracial cultural event which marked the beginning of modern Pentecostalism. It investigates the individual histories of the movement’s founder, William J. Seymour, and his teacher, Charles Fox Parham, the movement’s multiracial constituency, and specific activities of laypeople within the movement. This chapter contextualizes the Pentecostalism in Los Angeles as illustrative of the city’s multicultural and multiracial characteristics.
