The African-American church arose in a unique context. History and Theology of the African American Church (CS251) examines that context, taking into account the impact of the Civil War, the African-American missions movement of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and the challenges that the African-American church faced in the twentieth century. An encouraging part of the course is seeing how the theology of the African-American church provided the foundation for the civil rights movement. The course concludes with a discussion of current challenges within the African-American church and the need for new models to meet those challenges.
