Summary
"Chronicles the rich history of an institution at the heart of the African American experience. Beginning with enslavement, traveling through Emancipation, Jim Crow, the Great Migration, the Civil Rights movement, and ending in the present-day, Gates takes viewers on a journey through time, focusing on the key events, charismatic figures, political debates, and musical traditions that have shaped, and been shaped by, the Black Church. The series also explores the complexity of these spaces of worship at a time when many believe it is at a crossroads. A chorus of leading scholars, ministers, and cultural influencers who grew up in the Black Church will weigh in and give meaning to events past and present."--Container.

Summary
From Boston's African Meeting House, founded in 1804, to Birmingham and Montgomery in the 1960s, this film tells the story of the African-American church in America. Meet former slave Richard Allen, who founded the African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church, leading his first worship services in a Philadelphia blacksmith shop; and Absalom Jones, who became the nation's first ordained black clergyman. Their vision personified the courage and community that combined African spirituality with the Christian message of liberation. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other Civil Rights leaders drew upon this legacy to organize non-violent protests against Southern segregation and achieve milestones in the ongoing struggle for racial equality in the United States.
