Joseph Gomez, an A.M.E. minister who rose through the ministerial ranks to be ordained a bishop in 1948, was also a teacher, civil rights pioneer, scholar, writer, and humanitarian. Gomez's daughter draws on his letters, journals, and church records for this biography and a history of the age in which he lived.To make up for the poor pay, Hazel insisted on buying little gifts for the women who cleaned, from whom she learned a great deal about the country. ... A few days later they were taken to the Coppera belt to visit the A.M.E. churches in Kitwe, Ndola, and Mufulira. ... The people also gave them such gifts as a handmade xylophone, drums of hide, shields, spears, canes, and African heads carved of wood.
