CLASS WITH REV. STEPHANIE
The Black Church on PBS
Monday afternoons,1-2:30 PM OR
Monday nights, 7-8:30 PM (the same material will be discussed in both meetings)

The class is taking a break from the Morality book study, and instead will be discussing the documentary The Black Church for the next several Mondays.

The Black Church: This is Our Story, This is Our Song is a two-part, four-hour documentary series from Henry Louis Gates, Jr., tracing the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America. 

Part One begins with the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the extraordinary ways enslaved Africans preserved and adapted their faith practices under the brutal realities of human bondage. Part Two focuses on the role of the Black church in addressing social inequality and ministering to those in need, from the exodus out of the Jim Crow South during the Great Migration to the heroic phase of the civil rights movement in the 1950s and ‘60s. The series examines the church as a living institution, and the changing nature of worship spaces. The churches Gates visits are both a world within a world, where Black Americans could be themselves, and the epicenter of the freedom struggle.
