I found this a fascinating book, giving a short history of the black experience with christian churches in the United States. It was however, rather critical of the mainline denominations and seemed to focus on the adaptation of the christian practice and belief into a "black" church via the AME Church.

This book is a rich and thorough accounting of the early black church, beginning even before the Revolutionary War days. There is so much in this book that probably has been unknown to the average reader and perhaps even to the average church historian.
We have heard so much about 11:00 on Sunday morning being the most segregated hour of the week, but the material in this book will demonstrate why it was important for the black churches to develop separate from the white churches which would "rule" them.
The author had some shocking things to say about American religious and political life in the 1920s and about Woodrow Wilson in particular, but I had to remind myself that the book was written in 1921. We need to hear his comments! Carter Woodson has made a major contribution to the history of religion and the history of a people as well.

Dr. Woodson is one of the greatest historians America ignores. His straight, forward, truthful style is refreshing. He uses history to define the strengths and failings of the Church and then unveils the consequences/effects of them on the people. whether they be new converts or seasoned believers. he offers sound (and blunt) advice of how the Black community can thrive with the help of God, and the respect of men.
