Black Preachers

Item Number:

In an exploration of the social and political legacy of African-American ministers, we examine their often contradictory role as they battled oppression while preserving peace, destroyed prejudice while celebrating race, and upheld tradition while fomenting change. We highlight the lives of five ministers: Reverend John Jasper of Virginia, who preached for over 50 years until his death in 1901; Father Divine during the Depression; Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, who helped power the Civil Rights Movement; Jesse Jackson, who added a dimension to political impact; and Bishop Eddie Long, who preaches to thousands. From solace offered by slave preachers to social and economic justice preached in the Civil Rights Movement to today's mega-churches, their goal has remained constant--to uplift the hopes and dreams of their people.
