Keely (1955–2006), in whose name the church has begun a scholarship fund.

As Detroit’s seventh oldest congregation, Second Baptist was the first to accommodate African American worshippers. The proximity to the Detroit River and easy access to Canada enabled the site to become a major stop on the Underground Railroad, assisting over five thousand freedom seekers from 1836 to the end of the Civil War in 1865.
