In his 1903 book "The Souls of Black Folk", W.E.B. Dubois introduced the concept of double conciousness. It's the idea that blacks find it difficult to find identity in a majority white world. This refrain is revisited in the Black Lives Matter movement today. This is even more apparent in black churches where theologies are conflicting with praxis on contemporary issues. How can the black clergy and leadership address this double conciousness while empowering believers to be "one body with many members?" Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of the day.
