African American Religious History A Documentary Witness

Review From User :

Extraordinary in its thematic variety and detail. I would have preferred the inclusions of writings by Malcolm X, Wallace Fard, Elijah Muhammad, members of the LDS Church, and survivors of the Jonestown debacle. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson do not appear. I would not be surprised if a future edition included Barack Obama's "A More Perfect Union." Still, this book makes African Americans the protagonists of their religious history, instead of making them supporting characters in a white-centric narrative. Younger students deserve to receive this message of black agency.
