Jim Jones and The Divine Lorraine Hotel

Jim Jones and The Divine Lorraine Hotel

So for our first episode we’re going to cover the Divine Lorraine Hotel, that giant old building way up on North Broad Street, with the neon sign on the roof. More specifically we’re going to talk about the building’s most famous owner; Father Divine, where he came from, what he did, and his relationship with the notorious suicide cult leader Jim Jones. 

Check out the visual companion below including this newsreel footage of Father Divine and this other video of James Earl Jones as Father Divine.
