Nothing’s Gonna Bind Us, We Are Free

Henry Louis Gates, Jr., writes, produces and hosts The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song. Joined by celebrities, singers and scholars such as Oprah Winfrey, John Legend, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Pastor Shirley Caesar, BeBe Winans and Rev. William Barber II, the documentary reveals how Black people have worshipped and used their faith. Part One explores the roots of African American religion, from the slave trade to Reconstruction. Part Two continues from the Jim Crow South to the present, where the struggle continues and the church finds itself at a crossroads.
