While it is the case that many African slaves were introduced to a perversion of the Gospel in an effort to subjugate them, there is another side to the story: many slaves approached Christianity in a manner contrary to their slave masters’ wishes, later using their religion as a framework for bother the abolitionist and civil rights movements. In his session, Adam Coleman will bring historical context showing how the Black Church in both the North and South contributed to the black community during times of slavery, and that Christianity was not simply beaten into black people- rather, there were countless individuals who took on Christ to fuel their progress towards liberty.
