Frederick Douglass pew at Metropolitan African Methodist Church, 1518 M Street NW

Around the corner from the White House is the Metropolitan African Methodist Church at 1518 M Street NW. Inside the historic church certain pews denote famous black Americans. No stranger to Metropolitan AME, it’s only fit and proper that on the inner aisle of the pews on the right side (looking towards the altar) there is a small unassuming plaque with simply, “FREDERICK DOUGLASS.”

Douglass was a regular lecturer at Metropolitan. His funeral services were held at Metropolitan.
