Recognizing and successfully navigating conflict in an African-American church congregation is a major challenge for both clergy and laity. In Culture and Conflict: African-American Congregations, Dr. Annisteen Tate-Cammack explores how culture influences the recognition and resolution of conflict in predominately African American congregations. Black people have developed their own distinctive culture and worldviews as parallels-not replicas- to mainstream culture. These distinct forms of culture and worldviews influence almost every facet of life, including the worship experience-and clergy and laity both must be sensitive to these differences in examining disharmony in the church. Culture and Conflict addresses a subject that has been long overlooked and largely understudied: Does the uniqueness of African-American culture impact the way discord is managed in predominately African-American congregations?
