"An expert in African American culture. Andrew Billingsley surveys nearly a thousand black churches across the country, including its oldest, the First African Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia. These black churches, whose roots extend back to antebellum times, have periodically confronted social, economic, and political problems facing the African American community. Mighty Like a River addresses such questions as: How widespread and effective is the community activity of black churches? What are the patterns of activities being undertaken today? How do activist churches confront such problems as family instability, youth development, AIDS and other health issues, and care for the elderly?" "With profiles of the remarkable black heroes and heroines who helped create the activist church, and a compelling agenda for expanding the black church's role in society at large, Mighty Like a River is an inspirational, visionary, and definitive account of the subject."--Jacket

Black families and the struggle for survival by Andrew Billingsley( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breaking away from those who see the structure of family life in the black community as pathological, this study wishes to assist a lay audience in identifying the strengths of black families. The book provides both insights and resources for engaging churches and black families in the common task of enhancing black family life. Where the church's ministry with families is concerned, the book addresses various questions, such as: (1) what the goal, of the black family life should be; (2) how the church might go about assisting the black family in the struggle of positive human development; (3) where the black family should fit within the programmatic priorities of the church; and (4) what the role of the black church should be, given the historical character of the black family's existence and the continuing forces of disintegration that threaten it. A study guide, outlining ways in which the book might be used in the black church's educational ministries with black families, is appended. In addition to the assistance this guide offers, it calls attention to a number of other relevant resources that might prove helpful to the leader in conducting study sessions based upon this text. Chapters in the book focus on: (1) black families in perspective, (2) African heritage, (3) slavery--the Americanization of the Africans, and, (4) teaching children to "walk tall." Author/AM)

Family values reconsidered by Andrew Billingsley( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Billingsley follows the theme of his book Climbing Jacob's ladder and "discusses how the basic values that enabled African American families to survive slavery and the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions are being severely tested in the new Information Age. If these same values are understood and supported without political and scholarly distortion, they can help all families cope more effectively with the pressures generated by technological and social changes. He uses real life examples to illustrate the depth of the African American family structure."--Advertisement
