Interracial Churches are Rare
The PBS program Religion & Ethics Newsweekly recently featured a video on interracial churches - an uncommon occurence among American churches.
Looking at racial diversity in churches broadly, it also focuses on the experience of Wilcrest Baptist Church in Houston. It also focuses on the African American experience.
Friends Michael Emerson (Rice University and pictured here) and Korie Edwards (Ohio State University) are featured.
