A History of Black Congregational Christian Churches of the South (Stanley)
A Century of History
The History of Black Congregational Christian Churches of the South covers 110 years of religious and social history, from 1865 to 1975, from the American Missionary Association through the formation of the United Church of Christ. The Black church within the United Church of Christ (UCC) reflects the ways in which the UCC and its predecessor bodies have responded to social change and to the dilemma of racism in the white American conscience.
