A Writing Which Challenges Thoughts on Black Religious Leadership Dec 26, 2007
Peter Paris has been acknowledged in Black America Religious Community as one of the most dynamic, energizing, critical, but analytical thinkers of the 20th Century. He used his skills and scholarly approach to examine four of the most influential Black Religious Leaders during the Civil Rights era. He correctly assesses the message of each leader, and proceeds to examine them in light of their impact on a changing society. Persons who read this writing would be introduced to the background of each leader, their family heritage, and the impact of their family life, religious knowledge, and educational impact on their leadrship styles. An excellent, thorough discussion of each personality and how though diverse they were unified in their efforts for the movement.
