CLE & ONL

This course is designed to expose participants to social distortions and inequalities stemming from America’s economic structures and systems, and to interrogate African American church responses to the American socio-economic context. In exploring this, the course will assess black church relational and programmatic alignments with the poor at neighborhood levels; black church socio-cultural perspectives pertaining to normative social lifestyles, attitudes toward work, and family structures; and black church political and public policy alignments bearing on their relationship with the poor.

Prerequisites

No prerequisites required.
