Wright Chapel AME Zion Church is a historic African American church located in Lowndes County, Alabama. The church was founded in 1869 and played a significant role in the civil rights movement of the 1960s, serving as a gathering place for activists and hosting meetings and rallies.
The church building itself is a simple, wooden structure with a gabled roof and a small bell tower. It is a rare surviving example of the vernacular church architecture that was common in rural Alabama in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Today, the church continues to serve as a spiritual center for its congregation and a reminder of Alabama’s rich civil rights history.
