An explosion of flourishing black megachurches has changed the landscape of American religious life. Boasting memberships into the tens of thousands and meeting within both adorned walls and refurbished warehouse buildings, these contemporary fruits of the Civil Rights Movement hold many of the resources necessary to address America's contemporary social disparities. After studying nearly 150 black megachurches, Tamelyn N Tucker-Worgs asks, How are these church communities engaging the public sphere? And, why are their approaches so varied? This book sets aside the broad assumptions usually applied to the study of black churches and analyses the three factors most necessary for social engagement, theological orientation, organisation of community development initiatives, and gender-based spheres of labour and leadership. In doing so, Tucker-Worgs underscores the myriad ways in which black megachurches have responded to the changing social climate and concludes that while some have lived up to their potential, others have a long way to go.

Tamelyn N. Tucker-Worgs is Associate Professor of Political Science and African American Studies at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland.
