FAITH IN THE HOOD
Southeast DC, the city's poorest region, has only one sit-down restaurant, but hundreds of churches. This program is a compelling portrait of the inner city, as seen through the prism of the spiritual life of its people. The film profiles five ministries: a street ministry for former convicts, a socially active storefront church, a powerful Afro-centric church, an evangelical camp for youth, and an Islamic school.
With commentary from leading experts on African American faith, the film displays the richness of inner-city religion and its centrality as a defining aspect of black community life.
