This course explores primary and secondary sources in the African American Religious experience in an effort to uncover indigenous material that reflects a distinctively Black spiritual formation tradition. Students will explore different genres – slave narratives, conversion narratives, call narratives, prayers, sermons, art – as well as the life and works of selected personalities. In addition, this course may include a seminar, workshop and/or retreat as part of the modalities of delivery. This course is graded pass/fail.
