In the struggle to correct years of neglect, America has produced volumes of studies on the black man and his history. Now comes a study of the black church, through the eyes of one who described himself as a "Ghetto Joe. (whom) the Holy Spirit helps...keep his cool" and view life more objectively than many Negroes. Neither justifying the black man's faults, nor attempting to make the white man a scapegoat, Banks surveys the history of the black man in America and relates his religious life to the total environment. He charts the beginning of the black church, the sending of black missionaries, and the black's contribution to American religious life and music. Banks then responds to many issues related to the black church, including black power, black theology, the black manifesto, and civil disobedience.
