Candid Conversations: Black Church

Primary tabs

Age: Adult

WUCF, 6pm.

Tracing the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America, THE BLACK CHURCH reveals how Black people have worshipped and, through their spiritual journeys, improvised ways to bring their faith traditions from Africa to the New World, while translating them into a form of Christianity that was not only truly their own, but a redemptive force for a nation whose original sin was found in their ancestors’ enslavement across the Middle Passage. Film is hosted by Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr,. A discussion will follow.
