*Many argue that activism within black churches has declined (if not disappeared) since the days of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, says the New York Times.
But last month, on King’s birthday, a group of African American faith leaders called for Americans to “Occupy the Dream” with protests at Federal Reserve banks.

Josef Sorett, in cooperation with Columbia University’s Institute for Religion, Culture and Public Life and Institute for Research in African-American Studies, organized this discussion. It is in conjunction with the public radio special “The Harlem Renaissance: Music, Religion, and the Politics of Race,” which will air at 8 p.m. on Feb. 14 on WNYC, and on other public radio stations nationwide.
