From Labor to Reward: A History of Black Churches in the Bay Area
The Black Church in the Bay Area has been a supportive and motivational institution for over 160 years. It has provided leadership in the struggle for civil rights, political representation, economic equality, and social advancement. Join Dr. Martha C. Taylor as she discusses her new book, "From Labor to Reward: Black Church Beginnings in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and Richmond, 1849-1972," which traces the growth of 65 churches, from the Gold Rush days to the Civil Rights Era. This book is the result of many years of in-depth study of local history, religion, liberation theology, and social movements.
