Our third topic of discussion focuses on the Black church and its affects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Is the Black church still the cornerstone of the Black Community?
2. Does the Black church have an impact on the morality of the Black Community?
3. Do you think the Black church is corrupt?
In many ways the Black Community owes its existence to the Black church and its leaders. Always at the forefront of the march towards equality and citizenship in the United States, Black preachers were often the leaders of movements and the voice of reason when it came to what was considered right and fair in the eyes of all mankind. However, with the passing of time, the once elevated position of being a Black preacher has been relegated to an afterthought for the more recent generation of Black youth. The few that still have the attention of the Black Community have either been caught in scandal or spend time and resources struggling to stave off anything that may cause their reputations to become tarnished. The Black Church has taken an even bigger hit, with less and less influence over its dwindling congregation, resulting in less of an impact on the entire Black Community. Has the decline of the Black church helped in the destruction of Our community?
