About the Lecture

For years, scholars talked about the Black Church in North America as if it were a monolith, ignoring the unique circumstances of Black Christians in Canada. This lecture will present an overview of the origins of the Black Church in Canada debunking cultural stereotypes and taken for granted assumptions of its solely US-based origins. It will also discuss issues confronting the Black Church in the 21st century.
