Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church
Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church was a site where mass meetings were held during the Albany Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. Working closely with Old Mt. Zion Baptist Church across the street on Whitney Avenue, both churches held mass meetings with crowds exceeding 1,500 people when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke to their members in 1961. Rev. H.C. Boyd, one of the civil rights leaders during the Albany Movement, served as pastor from 1959 until his death in 2016.
A Georgia Historical Society Civil Rights Trail marker honoring the Albany Movement is located in front of the church. Shiloh hosts performances by the Freedom Singers during Black History Month and annual Martin Luther King Jr. celebrations.
Hours: Sunday services 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
