Black Church

In his book, “The Black Church is the Black Community’s Cornerstone,” Horace Baldwin wrote:  “For over two hundred years the black church has played various roles in the black community including a temporary refuge from the oppressions of slavery, a needed sanctuary on the ‘Freedom Trail,’ a place of emotional release from racial discrimination, and vehicle of social change.”

In many ways some black churches have continued that legacy of service to our communities. However, given the rise in poverty, black on black violence, the disproportionate number of black men in prison and number of  black women raising children alone  – it is time for the church to re-establish its leadership position. Below are 5 actions we believe the black church can take to help move us forward.
