At, Eddie Glaude, Jr. and Josef Sorett discuss what it means to be black and Christian in the present, “post-soul” moment:

Glaude is the William S. Tod Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton; Sorett, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Religion at Columbia.

The discussion follows from Glaude’s article “The Black Church Is Dead,” published in The Huffington Post this past February, and the responses collected in ReligionDispatches’ feature “The Black Church Is Dead—Long Live the Black Church,” which includes reflections on Glaude’s essay from Sorett, Anthea D. Butler, Jonathan L. Walton, and others.
