Re: Topic 7 DQ 1

Before the American Revolution, around 1758, one of the first known Black churches in America was founded. This house of worship, known as the African Baptist or “Bluestone” Church, was established on the William Byrd plantation near the Bluestone River in Mecklenburg, Virginia.

During the late-eighteenth-century Great Awakening, Evangelical Baptist and Methodist preachers went across the South. A few thousand slaves converted after they made direct appeals to them.

 The activities of the Black church were significantly delayed by whites between 1820 and 1855 as a result of multiple slave resistance.

The Black Church was vital in helping freed slaves and establishing information flow between anti-slavery organizations and plantation slaves.

Between 1880 and 1925, the church faced significant hostility from other Southern whites. Southern laws, which were observed in every southern state and stripped Blacks of all their human rights.

From WWII to the 1960s, the Black church advocated civil rights for all African-Americans. Protests against discrimination and oppression of Blacks in the military, employment, public facilities, housing, schools, voting, and other economic/social areas.

The African American churches were considered extended families for their members. While Christianity was originally introduced by the slave owners, it was later looked at as an outing and day off work. Many slaves began to relate to the story of the Exodus. While religion factored into the Civil War on both sides, the religious perspective gave way to literary and artistic responses to slavery. After the Emancipation Proclamation, oppression continued even though religious freedom and education were beginning. Black religion was at the heart of the civil rights movement, with Dr. martin Luther King Jr. becoming the spokesman. While religion was the first door to open, it became the only profession open to blacks and the black churches were the only institutions controlled by blacks. Women are allowed to be ministers in the Methodist churches. Women are also to hold special titles of Mother of the Church and Nurses.
