Little Preacher Man

Preacher Man

       Pictured above is an African American preacher figurine on my grandmother’s coffee table. My grandmother is a very devout Christian woman, and has several knick knacks similar to this one all throughout her home. These statuettes symbolize the importance of the Christian church in many African American households and communities as a pillar of strength and spiritual guidance.
