CNN's BLACK IN AMERICA Series Will Continue with "CHURCHED"

BLACK IN AMERICA – CHURCHED - Coming in October 2010

Martin Luther King, Jr. described 11-o’clock on Sunday mornings as “the most segregated hour in America.”

He hoped the Black Church would become a “Beloved Community,” where everyone – sharecropper to businessman – would be treated equally, working together for social justice. Indeed, the Black Church provided the vision and the foot power for the movement that reshaped America.

Churches have long been central to African-American community life, supplying food, money, and social connections.

Four decades after the Civil Rights Movement, CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien uncovers how close the Black Church remains to this vision and talks to church leaders and believers about today’s role of the Black Church in America.
