- Program Description
In the black community, the church has often served double duty: saving the soul and nourishing the body.
Through faith-based initiatives, the Bush administration has made it possible for churches and religious organizations to provide more social services. But what are the implications of this partnership between church and community, and what has been the impact on the spiritual, political, and social life of the communities being served?
In this Basic Black conversation, guest host Howard Manly is joined by Reverend William Sinkford, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, and Harold Sparrow, executive director of the Black Ministerial Alliance.
