An excellent book that traces African-American Christianity from the early days of slavery to the current time, and shows how today's African-American Christianity contains elements of various African religions. There is interesting discussion on the various roles religion played and still continue to play in the lives of African-Americans, for not only did it provide spiritual sustenance during the dark days of slavery, but was also the foundation from which the Civil Rights Movement originated.
