Join us to explore the emergence of Christianity among the enslaved in African American history, which scholars argue is the most significant event in this cultural history. This interactive session will engage teachers in how the community of faith -- the Black Church -- provided leadership, articulated emancipatory and social justice values, and became “the primary source of cultural identity” (Wood & Frey 1998). In diversifying classrooms, the lived religions of many peoples has become increasingly important for 21st century civics and global citizenry among students.
