In This Place

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Helping Hand Club motto

Clubs met in a variety of places. Some gathered in members’ homes, or on their lawns. Some met in churches, or in their own or borrowed or rented lodges and halls. Some congregated above barbershops or in the back rooms of grocery stores. In almost every instance, African Americans assembled in places owned and operated by those of the same race.

The constitution of each club determined how often the group would assemble and what would happen at each meeting. Some clubs met on weeknights, others on weekends. Some met once a month, others once a week; still others met only nine months of the year. An unwritten rule prohibited meetings during church worship hours.
