Is There A Disconnect Between The Black Church And Hip Hop?!?!?!

What a great read! I recently attended an event where a well-known Black pastor was preaching. Hip, relatively young and Baptist, he delivered a scintillating sermon on social justice that at times had the audience cheering loudly. While I loved his message of empowering the poor and providing equal opportunities for the downtrodden, I was more than a bit turned off by the way he quoted three popular secular rappers as if they were Marcus Garvey, Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. Rest Here!

  2. Thanks for posting this article. As a DJ who goes to a traditional black church and a board member of K.I.N.G., the organization whose site you linked to, there's a huge disconnect. Christian Hip Hop gets more support from White Pastor's and Churches than it does from our own community. This, despite the fact that many of our record labels and media outlets are black owned and run by seminary or bible college educated men.

    Please pray for that this can change. Too many of our young people need to hear the message in our music. We are able to connect with them in a way that's a bit different than a typical church or Pastor.
