THE BLACK CHURCH! SINCE THE TIME OF WHAT MANY BELIEVE TO BE ITS' INCEPTION IN 1794 WITH RICHARD ALLEN AND ABSALOM JONES,OR WHEN RICHARD ALLEN FOUNDED THE AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, THE FIRST INDEPENDENT BLACK DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH IN THE U.S. IN 1816, AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE USED THE BLACK CHURCH TO ADVANCE MANY OF THE CURES TO THE SOCIAL ILLS THAT HAVE PLAGUED US IN THIS COUNTRY. AND WHILE MANY HAVE USED IT AS A TOOL OF OUR LIBERATION, OTHERS HAVE USED IT FOR MORE SELFISH GAINS. TONIGHT WE TALK ABOUT THE BLACK CHURCH AND OUR LIBERATION MOVEMENT. WHAT WERE SOME OF THE HIGH POINTS? WHICH MINISTERS AND CHURCHES TOOK ON THE STRUGGLE HEAD ON? WHAT ARE WE TO EXPECT FROM THE BLACK CHURCH TODAY? IS IT JUST A PLACE TO SOOTHE OUR SOUL AND PRAY OR DOES IT HAVE A LARGER RESPONSIBILITY? IS IT STILL AS RELEVANT TODAY AS IN THE PAST? WE'LL TACKLE THESE AND MANY MORE QUESTIONS WITH YOUR HOST, GREGORY TAYLOR, AND A MYRIAD OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS. BE SURE TO BE THERE!!!
