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.
