The role of the black church

The role of the black church

What was once called the Negro church in the course of the struggle for equality has emerged as a major force advocating, equality,  democracy and social change.  How did the transition from the Negro church to the black church take place; what were the class and social forces that helped shape it; how did these issues relate to the broader society issues in the U.S. during the 19th and 20th century? The questions and more are addressed by Ed Carson.

Would you describe the black church as useful idiots (Lenin)

    African Americans are no ones idiots and refuse to be used.

    Whatever was the point of your question – a question you seemed to answer yourself. although you threw the blame for it on Lenin, who probably said absolutely nothing about the black church. Your disrespectful skirt is showing!
