Item description for Breaking Barriers: An African American Family & the Methodist Story by Angella Current...

This is the life story of Leontine Turpeau Current Kelly, the first African American woman elected bishop in a mainline denomination. Told by her daughter, the story also recounts the history of a black family and its longtime passion for and involvement with the church. Like an intricately woven tapestry Breaking Barriers illustrates how historical church, societal and world events and milestones shaped and influenced the lives of countless individuals, families, and communities.

Publishers Description

Just as Roots told the story of the African-American experience in the United States, Breaking the Barriers illustrates the experience of African Americans within United Methodism, and the important roles that faith, the church, and family played in molding the character and work of numerous individuals throughout the denomination.

On July 19, 1984, Leontine Current Kelly was elected bishop of The United Methodist Church, making her the first African-American woman to become a bishop within a major American religious denomination. Breaking the Barriers recounts the story of her journey and that historic achievement
