Religious buildings have always served as important meeting grounds for the Black community. In times when public gatherings could prove a death sentence these religious hubs became even more essential to social life in the Black community. The 1902 Joplin tornado rendered important Black churches useless and the donations of white philanthropist Thomas Connor made the construction of three new Black churches possible. Trinity was one of those churches established in 1903, yet it sadly no longer stands.
