Racism in the Faith:The Emergence of Black Baptists and Presbyterians—North and South of the Promise Land
The struggle for equality for African Americans actually began within the hallowed walls of the American Church. In addressing what many scholars call the “walk out narratives” of African American Christians in both the North and the South, this presentation exposes the ways in which the Black Church navigated the terrains of racism within the sacred spaces of Christianity through the lens of Black Baptist and Presbyterians.
