Question: Does Today's Black Church Still Have A Role To Play In The Fight Against Social Injustice?
According to Dallas Texas Megachurch Pastor T.D.Jakes, they do. Whether it’s Mike Brown’s funeral or weighing in on Trayvon Martin, Bishop T.D. Jakes is ready to tackle the social justice battles being waged throughout the country. In Dallas, Bishop T.D. Jakes says he participates in a council of churches, comprised of black and white churches, that address social issues in the community.
The days of the black churches spearheading a movement the way the did during the Civil Rights Movement are gone, Jakes says, but black churches still have a role to play in the fight against social injustice.
