SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 23 - The Black Church and Black Struggle
FEATURED SPEAKERS Rev. Bernard Lafayette (SNCC Field Secretary) Rev. Nelson Johnson (Student Organization for Black Unity) Rev. David Forbes (Raleigh Student Movement)
The Black church was born in struggle in the midst of slavery, and despite laws and vigilante actions targeting it for destruction the church has not only survived, but has played a sustained and central role over more than 300 years of Black struggle in America. This panel of Black churchmen, with very active audience participation, reflects and examines the historical role of the church, its specific role in the Movement of the 1960s, and the lessons of that struggle for today.
