The Black Church: This is Our Story, This is Our Song
Tuesday, February 23 @ 9:00 pm
This moving four-hour, two-part series from executive producer, host and writer Henry Louis Gates traces the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America, all the way down to its bedrock role as the site of African American survival, organizing, resilience and so much more. The documentary reveals how Black people have worshipped and, through their spiritual journeys, improvised ways to bring their faith traditions from Africa to the New World, while translating them into a form of Christianity that was not only truly their own. The documentary airing on PBS. Check local television listings. 706-613-3650, www.athenslibrary.org
