The Negro Church in America
'A brief but brilliant analysis of the historical origin and the present situation of a crucially important institution of the American Negro people.'--Gunnar Myrdal This book also includes 'The Black Church Since Frazier' by C. Eric Lincoln. According to C. Eric Lincoln, the turbulent decade of the Sixties witnessed the death of the Negro Church. In its place, the offspring of the conflict between 'conscienceless power' and 'powerless conscience, ' is the Black Church.
