News & Interviews for The Black Church: This is Our Story, This is Our Song: Season 1
The series brings that story to the present - a time of rejuvenated racial justice protests in America.
"The Black Church" can't quite get the present moment into focus either - Black Lives Matter, the racial crisis of the right here-right-now. What does come into focus is that resonant message. The Black church is the story of America.
Black directors, producers and on-camera talent at their helms-and, not coincidentally, a disinclination to sugarcoat the devastating effects of systemic racism to appease white viewers.
Though The Black Church is fast-moving, Gates' research is expansive, and he leaves nearly no detail on the subject unturned.
Immediately you can sense what a personal experience it is for [Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr.], but he also makes the viewer part of that by tying American history to the evolution of the Black church.
Brilliant docu reveals role of the Black church in America.
It's not an unblemished chronicle. Even as Gates tracks the infusion of Christianity into African traditions preserved during slavery, he acknowledges the sexism that kept women out of the pulpit for centuries, among other contradictions.
