Duke University Chapel is a chapel located at the center of the campus of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. It is an ecumenical Christian chapel and the center of religion at Duke, and has connections to the United Methodist Church. Constructed from 1930 to 1932, the Chapel seats about 1,800 people and stands 210 feet (64 m) tall, making it one of the tallest buildings in Durham County. It is built in the Collegiate Gothic style, characterized by its large stones, pointed arches, and ribbed vaults.The tower was heavily inspired by Boston College’s Gasson Hall, which was built 19 years earlier. It also has a 50-bell carillon and three pipe organs, one with 5,033 pipes and another with 6,900 pipes.A conscious decision was made to place the Chapel at the center of the university and on the highest ridge of Duke University’s West Campus. Although plans for a chapel were first made in April 1925, the cornerstone was not laid until 22 October 1930. In fact, when it was completed in 1935 at a cost of $2.3 million, the Chapel was the last of the original buildings to be built on West Campus. It was first used during Commencement in 1932 and was formally dedicated on 2 June 1935. Stained-glass windows and other details were installed at a later date.The chapel was designed by African American Julian Abele, chief designer for the Philadelphia firm of Horace Trumbauer. The current Dean of the Chapel is Samuel Wells.
Carson-Newman graduated over 40 graduate students in a ceremony held in the sanctuary of Jefferson City’s First Baptist Church. Dr. Bill Blevins, professor emeritus of counseling and 1959 alumnus, addressed the class.
Christopher Hunter, a graduate student in the Department of Architecture, presents “Introduction of the Architecture of Early South American Church Building 1880-1920.”
The presentation was given at “Natural, Built, Virtual,” the 19th annual Texas A&M College of Architecture Research Symposium, which was held Oct. 23 in the Langford Architecture Center’s Preston Geren Auditorium. The daylong session showcased research and creative work by college faculty and, for the first time, doctoral students.

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the architecture of the early southern
African American church building constructed between 1880 and 1920.
The African American church experience is a continuously evolving part of the American experience. Many of the current African American churches were organized in the early to mid-
After the Civil War, many of these organized congregations began constructing places of worship, primarily throughout the southern United States, either within an urban or a rural setting. Many of these church buildings eventually became the center of spiritual, educational, political, and cultural life for millions of people, continuing to this day.
These church buildings often hosted famous orators or were witnessed to historical events, but these buildings have not received the academic attention necessary to inquire, study, and document their architectural relevance to the people they serve as well as their place in a community. These buildings should be considered just as significant as the people and events they housed.
This paper will present a brief example one such relevant building in the First African Baptist Church (FABC) of Savannah, Georgia. Organized in 1773, FABC is historically considered one of the oldest continuous churches in North America. The paper will introduce the building’s design intent, construction methods of the time, as well as its historical and contemporary place within the local Savannah community.

In May 2004, after receiving an award at the celebration of the 50th Anniversary commemoration of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling—a ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court that outlawed school racial segregation in schools—Cosby made public remarks critical of African Americans who put higher priorities on sports, fashion, and “acting hard” than on education, self-respect, and self-improvement, pleading for African-American families to educate their children on the many different aspects of American culture. More Bill Cosby:
In the “Pound Cake” speech, Cosby, who holds a doctorate in education, asked that African-American parents teach their children better morals at a younger age. Cosby told the Washington Times, “Parenting needs to come to the forefront. If you need help and you don’t know how to parent, we want to be able to reach out and touch” (DeBose, Brian). Richard Leiby of The Washington Post reported, “Bill Cosby was anything but politically correct in his remarks Monday night at a Constitution Hall bash commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision.”
Cosby again came under sharp criticism and was again largely unapologetic for his stance when he made similar remarks during a speech in a July 1 meeting commemorating the anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. During that speech, he admonished apathetic blacks for not assisting or concerning themselves with the individuals who are involved with crime or have counter-productive aspirations. He further described those who needed attention as blacks who “had forgotten the sacrifices of those in the Civil Rights Movement.” The speech was featured in the documentary 500 Years Later, which set the speech to cartoon visuals.
In 2005, Georgetown University sociology professor Michael Eric Dyson wrote a book entitled Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind? In the book, Dyson wrote that Cosby was overlooking larger social factors that reinforce poverty and associated crime; factors such as deteriorating schools, stagnating wages, dramatic shifts in the economy, offshoring and downsizing, chronic underemployment, and job and capital flight. Dyson suggested Cosby’s comments “betray classist, elitist viewpoints rooted in generational warfare.”
Cornel West defended Cosby and his remarks, saying, “he’s speaking out of great compassion and trying to get folk to get on the right track, ’cause we’ve got some brothers and sisters who are not doing the right things, just like in times in our own lives, we don’t do the right thing… He is trying to speak honestly and freely and lovingly, and I think that’s a very positive thing.”
In a 2008 interview, Cosby mentioned Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan; Oakland, California; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Springfield, Massachusetts, among the cities where crime was high and young African-American men were being murdered and jailed in disproportionate numbers. Cosby stood his ground against criticism and affirmed that African-American parents were continuing to fail to inculcate proper standards of moral behavior. Cosby still lectures to black communities (usually at churches) about his frustrations with certain problems prevalent in underprivileged urban communities, such as in illegal drugs; teenage pregnancy; Black Entertainment Television; high-school dropouts; anti-intellectualism; gangsta rap; vulgarity; thievery; offensive clothing; vanity; parental alienation; single-parenting; and failing to live up to the ideals of Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., and African-Americans who preceded Generation X.
Cosby has also been openly critical of conservative Republican politicians in regards to their views on socioeconomic and racial issues. In a 2013 CNN interview regarding voting rights, Cosby stated “this Republican Party is not the Republican Party of 1863, of Abraham Lincoln, abolitionists and slavery, is not good. I think it’s important for us to look at the underlying part of it. What is the value of it? Is it that some people are angry because my people no longer want to work for free?”
Here we are in Paradise, that’s Tucson, Arizona on a beautiful afternoon at an outdoor cafe. It’s the corner of Church and Congress St and we can see the former Valley Bank Building, site of the 1956 movie “A Kiss Before Dying” starring Robert Wagner and Joanne Woodward. In the movie we see a beautiful panorama of the city more than 50 years ago right before he throws her off the top of the building. With us at the cafe is lovely Dorothy McCutcheon (Dorothy Haas), 1961 graduate of Catalina High School.
