Abstract

Back to the Basics... is a provocative presentation which focuses on the role of the Black church as a socio—cultural, politico-economic institution in an historic context. Not focused in Williams' paper are the spiritual, religious aspects of the Black church, but the solutions proposed certainly lead toward a liberation theology. Williams' primary focus is on how the Black church, in a modern context, has drifted away from its original raison d'etre, and he attempts to show what can be done to restore the Black church, as an agent or institution for the people, to a position which serves the people.
