Abstract:

This research focuses on black political churches outside what is traditionally defined as the black church milieu (e.g. black Baptists, AME and COGIC). Political churches deem “political awareness and activity as salient pieces of their identity” (McClerking and McDaniel 2005, 723).
The tendency of scholars to focus on historically black denominations in defining black political churches is logical, but leaves black church prophets in non-black denominations in scholarly limbo. First, black political churches in non-black denominations may have different theological motivations for political participation than those in black denominations. Second, given the historical roots of some black political churches in non-black denominations, mobilization strategies may differ from those in black denominations. Third, in large urban areas, a number of black political churches are megachurches affiliated with non-black denominations. Including these churches will help answer whether megachurches represent a countervailing trend in black political activism (Harris et al. 2005).
The local environment frames the activities of black political churches. This study examines two black political churches in non-black denominations in Chicago to 1) determine the theological orientation of pastors of black political churches in non-black denominations and 2) explore the types of political activity undertaken by black political churches in non-black denominations. To what extent is black liberation theology evident in black political churches in non-black denominations? Does denominational identity outside the black church ambit shape the political activities of these churches? Methods include participant observation at political churches, content analysis of pastoral messages, interviews with pastors, and a brief survey.
