Synopsis
This study argues that the church has the capacity of fostering ideological resistance to the diminant order and therefore making a profound contribution to the sociopolitcal liberation of black Americans. By developing this position using quantitve research methods in three Afircan-American churches, the work confirms the reality of this potential, showing that a counter-hegemonic apporach to church in the black community is possible. This is significant because many politically active scholars, even African-American radicals, disparage the institution as a polically destructive hegemonic organisation that misuses social and economic resources.
