April 13th 2022: The Modern Role of the Black Church

Historically the Black church has been a cornerstone of Black life. Not just for religious centering, but for social activism, educational opportunity, and what it means to be a community.

This week, Dr. Monique Moultrie, Reverend Stanley A. Williams, III, and Pastor Cheryl Moore will discuss the way forward for the Black Church.
