Just like what we whiteys see on TV: a small, neat crowd of black people dressed in sparkling garments, standing near an altar, wailing about Jesus or the Holy Spirit. ABYSSINIAN BAPTIST CHURCH's Chancel Choir is in full throttle Sunday morning for the congregation and tourists who line up around the Harlem block early just to get in. The performances are rowdy, jaw dropping, and gosh-darn uplifting.
