The Religion of Blacks in the United States: Some Recent Trends and Current Characteristics
Glenn, Norval D.; Gotard, Erin
American Journal of Sociology, 83, 2, 443-51, Sep 77
The research reviews the religious activity of American Blacks since 1960. Findings indicate a continued high level of church attendance, confidence in the clergy, and a decline in number of Black clergymen. The traditional image of Black religion as unusually otherworldly and nonascetic is not supported. (Author/DB)
