        3Civil rights and the struggle for black equality in the twentieth century
        On Jordans banks: the origins of community, faith, and struggle in Cairo Redemptive love, vigilante terror, and rebellion: Cairo in the civil rights cauldron From the seminary to the streets: grassroots black theology and the forging of a united front Straight from the offering plate: church resources and the new black power coalition The recession of national spirit: the decline of the Cairo black power movement.

        In 1969, nineteen-year-old Robert Hunt was found dead in the Cairo, Illinois, police station. The white authorities ruled the death a suicide, but many members of the African American community believed that Hunt had been murdered--a sentiment that sparked rebellions and protests across the city. Cairo suddenly emerged as an important battleground for black survival in America and became a focus for many civil rights groups, including the NAACP. The United Front, a black power organization founded and led by Reverend Charles Koen, also mobilized--thanks in large part to the support of local Christian congregations. In this vital reassessment of the impact of religion on the black power movement, Kerry Pimblott presents a nuanced discussion of the ways in which black churches supported and shaped the United Front. She deftly challenges conventional narratives of the de-Christianization of the movement, revealing that Cairoites embraced both old-time religion and revolutionary thought. Not only did the faithful fund the mass direct-action strategies of the United Front, but activists also engaged the literature on black theology, invited theologians to speak at their rallies, and sent potential leaders to train at seminaries. Pimblott also investigates the impact of female leaders on the organization and their influence on young activists, offering new perspectives on the hypermasculine image of black power. Based on extensive primary research, this groundbreaking book contributes to and complicates the history of the black freedom struggle in America. It not only adds a new element to the study of African American religion but also illuminates the relationship between black churches and black politics during this tumultuous era.--Provided by publisher. File Size: 5MB.

"My old man believed in this work-and-overcome stuff," recalled Carmichael. But even it has not been completely destroyed. Perhaps most strikingly, the partisan leanings of African-Americans from every religious background tilt heavily in the Democratic direction. " -- Reading Religion, "What she has produced here is a fine study on one small and decidedly local civil rights effort that found that Black Power rhetoric and black theology and traditional church-based faith and organizing were not at odds but in fact could, combined, prove both morally persuasive and organizationally effective.

Radical Turn and SNCC Chairman Early in his time with the SNCC, Carmichael adhered to the philosophy of nonviolent resistance espoused by King.

This Far by Faith . Howard Thurman

This is ruin porn at its finest, or worst. In an essay entitled "Peace Tactics and a Racial Minority," Thurman depicted white America as characterized by the "will to dominate and control the Negro minority," Faith in black power situation which engendered among blacks a spiritually crippling hatred of their would-be dominators. Stokely Carmichael rose to prominence as a member and later the chairman of theworking with and other Southern leaders to stage protests.

By diving into the intricacies of movement making in Cairo, Pimblott is able to offer more nuanced and historically specific analyses of two categories of particular interest to scholars of religion: 'black theology' and 'the black church. There has been, to date, as far as I can tell, only one significant boom town in America that has been obliterated utterly by race division.

Throughout this postBlack churches and congregations are defined as those where the respondent said that all or most attendees are Black and the senior religious leaders are Black.

The church drew from African folklore and religions and Christianity to develop a unique blend of a sectarian and secular belief system that allowed black people to survive slavery and its aftermath.

In fact, on these and other measures of religious practices and beliefs, members of historically black Protestant churches tend to resemble members of evangelical Protestant churches, another Faith in black power religious group.
