Product Description

Accordingto 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 Blach Church. No longer dependent bastion of Black prudence. Black institutional religion--whether traditional, pentecostal, or Muslim--has assumed a new role of leadership in its centuries-old quest for social and spiritual justice in America.

Author Bio

E. FRANKLIN FRAZIER (1894-1962) was considered to be one of the most influential African-American sociologists of the twentieth century. His The Negro Church in America (published posthumously) was groundbreaking in its study of the changes in the black church after the Civil Rights Movement. He wrote nine books and over one hundred essays.

C. ERIC LINCOLN (1924-2000) was an African-American scholar who taught all over the United States. His novel, The Avenue, Clayton City, won the Lillian Smith Book Award for Best Southern Fiction in 1988 and the International Black Writers' Alice Browning Award in 1989. He was an elected member of the Fellowship of Southern Writers and founding president of the Black Academy of Arts and Letters. He was friends with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Alex Haley. In 1990, he was cited by Pope John Paul II for "scholarly service to the church."

Editorial Reviews

"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

"What Dr. Frazier provides in his brief study is a penetrating insight into the whole psyche of the American Negro . . . a classic study in American ethnic history."
Negro Digest
