The Little Rock AME Zion Church was originally located in Third Ward. In 1919, the building was moved to Myers Street in First Ward. It took several days, and it was necessary to hold a funeral in the sanctuary during the move.
Each year on the second Sunday in September, hundreds gathered in Charlotte's Brooklyn neighborhood to experience the parade honoring Bishop C. M. Grace. Sweet Daddy Grace, as he was fondly called, was the leader of the United House Of Prayer For All People, a Pentecostal denomination which grew out of the Brooklyn neighborhood.
