First black PM Preacher
My first contribution – it’s going to be brief! However, I am the direct great, great, great grandson of Samuel Barber, the first black Primitive Methodist preacher. He was with William Clowes in the beginning (saved on the same day!) and is a great inspiration to me in my Christian life. I have published John Smith’s biography of him ‘A Memoir of Samuel Barber’ (from the Primitive Methodist Magazine, 1829).
