Eddie S. Glaude and Josef Sorett on Blogging HeadsTV discuss "THE" Black Church
Eddie S. Glaude, Jr. (Princeton) and Josef Sorett (Columbia) have a very engaged conversation about the black church as an institution which is built upon a recent essay written by Prof. Glaude entitled, "The Black Church is Dead." I hope you enjoy this discourse between two very outstanding scholars as much as I have. This is hardly the last word on this topic both from an intellectual or pragmatic point of view, but it definitely helps to frame the future of the study of religion in the African American experience and also conversations we have outside of the walls of the academy.
Also be sure to read: "Updated with Response: The Black Church is Dead—Long Live the Black Church" by Anthea Butler, Johnathan L. Walton, William D. Hart, Josef Sorett, Ronald B. Neal, Edward J. Blum, and Eddie Glaude, Jr.
