When using the word Black Church in the USA, it should be recognized that I am speaking about all that black Jesus-followers are when the Sunday gatherings in a building is removed.  Everything we are outside of a church system.  Our Voice.  The Church.   Black Church is symbolic of how God has used black Christians in the history of the US.

“I have a dream.”

These were the words uttered by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 50 years ago today during the March on Washington. In a time of gross injustice, racism, discrimination, King’s dream envisioned a different path and possibility for our country.

The black and white pictures of the March on Washington show Dr. King’s fierce proclamation and the National Mall full of people taking a stand against injustice.

What’s easy to miss in the pictures, however, is the thousands of college students present at the March. Churches and groups like the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) gathered students from colleges and universities around the country to stand in solidarity, denounce injustice and racism, and answer the call to change in the U.S. Black and yellow, red and white, students dreamt and envisioned a different way forward that day.
