Apostles of Race: Religion and Black Racial Identity in the Urban North

Dr. Judith Weisenfeld, Princeton University

"Apostles of Race: Religion and Black Racial Identity in the Urban North"

About: 

Dr. Judith Weisenfeld explores the intersections of religion and racial identity among black migrants from the South and immigrants from the Caribbean who encountered one another in the northern cities of the early twentieth century Great Migration and contributed to the religious transformations migration spurred. Focusing on the Moorish Science Temple, Father Divine's Peace Mission movement, congregations of Ethiopian Hebrews, and the Nation of Islam, all of which emerged in the context of urbanization, migration, and immigration, she discusses members’ embodied approaches to alternative understandings of black racial identity and collective history to the dominant narratives provided by mainstream black Protestant churches and in broader American society.
