The African American Church History and Research/HCM, designed to be an African American church history depository, was established in 1992 by Glenda Williams Goodson, Founder and Executive Director. The following are the purposes for which this organization has been organized: To locate, preserve, archive, compile and publish historical Black church manuscripts, archives, photos, literary works, art, songbooks, Sunday School book minutes, yearbooks, souvenir books, newsletters, placards, sermons, audio, video, recordings, and related media; and any other religious, educational, literary, artistic, or charitable purposes to assist in the primary purpose.
In 2009, a new feature was added – The CAACHR History Conference. Scholars, historians, grad students and other interested individuals travel to Dallas to hear presenters from around the country who are experts in C.O.G.I.C. HISTORY. The Conference, now co-sponsored by Dallas’ African American Museum, is held on the last Saturday of February each year.
