A delightful pictorial broadside advertising a Methodist church concert in Detroit on September 12, 1952. Photographs include portraits of the choir director, Marvin Dupre; the narrator, Rev. Poole; and twenty- seven members of the co-ed Dupre Victorian Choir ranged in a V-shape in two rows. The Scott Methodist Church was founded in 1909, and was the first African-American Methodist Episcopal Church in Michigan. The church still exists today as the Scott Memorial United Methodist Church.
