The Black Church is an institution in the African-American Community. Its role in the Civil Rights Movement is celebrated. The Black Church’s presence in the community, as well as its benevolence is undoubtedly a major contributor to the bevy of achievements the black community has experienced over the years. But in many quarters of the Black Community, the so-called Black Church has not only abdicated its spiritual and social mandates, it has become an institution of insensitivity, profit and celebrity. In Part II of our series, ‘THE STATE OF THE BLACK CHURCH,’ we explore Same Sex Marriage, the Prosperity Gospel, celebrity and the impact of leadership in the church. ‘COMMUNITY VOICES’ host, Ron Holland explores the issue with Co-Pastor and Author, Rev. Myra Bellinger, Author and Lecturer, Dr. Joel Bryant and Wanda Reid of Radio One Charlotte.
