This newly released film by D. Eric Harmon reveals the bible's support for slavery and questions African American Christian's support for a book that condones holding humans in bondage.
Using scholars, pastors, and freethinkers, this documentary examines how African slaves were compelled to convert to Christianity. In the process, white slave masters opted to indoctrinate slaves with a religion that emphasized the bible's support for slavery and a visual representation of the divine in the form of white Jesus.
Topics included are the biblical "curses" whites invoked to justify black enslavement, passages that explicitly permit and endorse holding humans as property, the psychological damage the image of white Jesus inflicts on African American minds, and questions of faith that some black Christians face in modern times.
Running time 55 minutes. A Raitan Multi-Media Production. DVD copies are $19.95 for home viewing, and $250.00 for institutions such as universities and libraries. To order, visit Filmbaby.com and order online with your credit card.
