This dissertation is a study of the Black Church as a source of anti-Semitism in America. Anti-Semitism and prejudice are defined, and the roots of anti-Semitism are traced through biblical, medieval, and modern times.
Furthermore, this study attempts to bring together what I have investigated about anti-Semitism in the Black Church. First, the extent to which anti-Semitism exists within the Black Church is assessed. The specifically religious factors that give rise to anti-Semitism, or that tend to reduce it, are then considered. A few reflections are offered on what the Black Church can do to overcome anti-Semitism in its ranks.
