New historical evidence documents the arrival of slaves in the English settlement in Jamestown, Va., in 1619.
It is likely that the slaves who arrived in Jamestown had been baptized Catholic and had Christian names.In the 1780s, a slave named Andrew Bryan preached to a small group of slaves in Savannah, Ga. Despite persecution and harassment, the church grew, and by 1790 it became the First African Baptist Church of Savannah.In time, a Second and a Third African Church were formed, also led by black pastors.No story spoke more powerfully to slaves than the story of Exodus, with its themes of bondage and liberation brought by a righteous and powerful God who would one day set them free.Remarkably, a few black preachers in the South succeeded in establishing independent black churches.I’m curious to hear other people thoughts on this matter.
Marilyn Mellowes was principally responsible for the research and development of the series God in America and has served as its series producer.The church contains in full the kindness and cruelty, the fierce intelligence and the shocking ignorance, the struggles and successes, the love and yes, the bitterness and bias that make up the black experience in America.Eventually Obama broke with Wright and left Trinity, but his speech illuminated the role of the black church in the African American experience. I grow up on welfare and we use to get food that came in one of those boxes discussed in the article including powdered milk.Let me be clear; the nutrition value of the food in those boxes was zero.For the next 200 years, the slave trade exported slaves from Angola, Ghana, Senegal and other parts of West Africa to America's South.
