Abstract: This paper is a treatment of the historical and contemporary role of the Black church in the political motivation and organization of Black people. A discussion of the legacy of the Black church of the 1960's and how the Black church of the contemporary era has developed in that legacy will show that the Black church maintains its status as a political agent and that its orientation is not static but evolves over time in order to accommodate the changing needs of its constituency and in order to adapt to changes in society. The current modification of the Black church's orientation helps to keep it relevant and is in the community's best interest.
