On the next Fresh Air, Terry Gross talks with Henry Louis Gates Jr. His new book The Black Church is a companion to his PBS series of the same name. He describes black churches as the first institutions built by black people and run independent of white society in the U.S. We’ll talk about how the role of the church in his own life has changed over the years. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
