On Culture: A Failure to See Shades of Gray in The Black Church

Date: March 22, 2008
Author: Robin Givhan
QUOTE: ...popular culture has largely reduced the black church to a caricature. It is often depicted as a historical set piece filled with saintly Negroes who turned the other cheek as they planned their dignified marches for civil rights. Or it's the Sunday morning party house -- a heated revival where the members fan themselves vigorously and shout "hallelujah," and the choir sways and sings.
