Written on the official stationary of the Harlem Messiah

It’s not often you come across an item like this in Ebay which purports to be “Written on the official stationary of the Harlem Messiah.”

The item is ephemeral from the 1930’s Depression-era faith community of Father Devine, who led many Harlemites into hope when so many faced an unprecedented wall of economic and racial dispair.

Father Devine’s popularity allowed his organization to purchase this building on West 128th Street, just west of 5th Avenue which had been a Catholic home for nuns – and founded in more prosperous 1921.

The building has changed hands, and is now the Christ Temple of the Apostolic Faith.
