    Alexander Crummell: unsung hero As we look back on the history of African-Americans we all can recall the names of Dr. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. Also in our history are the unsung heroes that don't get talked about much. That's why I decided to take a moment to look back at Alexander Crummell. During his lifetime Alexander Crummell was noted for his active role in the Black community. In his younger years Crummell had planned and realized his vision of the church. He began to see the ch...
  • Four Blacks In The Whole Church

    In the opening chapters of "To Kill A Mockingbird", Harper Lee introduces several subtle instances of racism.

  • Growth Of A Black Middle Class Church
    3,143 words
    There is something tragically askew in the religious state of black Americans; namely, the near-failure of qualitative development in integrated and / or separate black middle-class churches and denominations. That same near-failure is of course evident in every mainstream Protestant denomination, black or white, whether the criteria be lack of growth or loss of adult membership, youth participation, trained clergy, theologically alert laity, or commitment to black ecumenism. But nowhere is this...
  • Free Black Family
    1,846 words
    Family and Church: Enduring Institutions. General Family Life As a result of myths of white family life, there has been much confusion over the nature of black families. One of the myths of the nineteenth century entails the close- knit white family, which was parallel to that of the European family. Also, as a result of these myths, scholars often ignored the differences of American and European life. For example, women in frontier areas had a much stronger voice in family affairs than most sch...
  • Black Citizens Of Birmingham

    When documentaries are filmed, produced, and then viewed, the audience is left with more knowledge and awareness than before having watched it. When I watch a National Geographic documentary on exploitation of indigenous peoples, I become aware of their situation and further understand the cruel world around me. Also, my emotions are stirred up. With the awareness that documentaries bring, also comes the waves of emotional buildup. This is why documentaries are most effective in grabbing an audi...
  • Church Elders Including Young
    913 words
    Until recently the Latter-day Saint Church had denied the priesthood, as well as several other religious practices to anyone that was of African decent. Heavy criticism from both non-Mormon and Mormon parties mounted until 1978, when then Church president Spencer Kimball announced the repeal.

    A City Within a City - Bronzeville Kathy M. Henry Kathy Henry August 3, 2003 Black Chicago - 351 Dr. L. Carey 12: 00 pm - 1: 45 pm M-W-F Introduction The reason I took this class is because so much of my family's history has been entwined in the neighborhood called Bronzeville, or as some call it, The Low End.

Depending upon the church and congregation the notion for women in the pulpit is either encouraged or dismi...

These forces included those such as the powerful Church, the Black Death, and the maltreatment of the peasant class. Economic difficulties were fully manifested by the start of the fourteenth century. Countries of northern ...
