We Discussed “The Black Church”

The Black Church

We gathered in June for a 4 week showing of

“The Black Church”

The 200+ minute film brought us together on Zoom to learn and

discuss the ways enslaved Africans in the United States became Christian.

We shared personal experiences and reflections.

Pr. Donna Allen served as host and moderator prompting us both to relate to the Black Christian experience and to acknowledge its uniqueness.
