In 1884, Lewis Colson,a former slave, came with the surveying crew to plat the town of Sarasota. In 1897, Colson and his wife, Irene, the midwife for the black community, donated land for the area’s first African American Church, the Bethlehem Baptist Church. Colson became its first minister. In those days the black community was chiefly in an area known as Overtown which grew as more African Americans came to Sarasota.
