1. The purpose of this study was to find out what the Negro church has done and what it is doing to effect full citizenship for the Negro in America, and what it has done to inspire white men to respect the fundamental principles of the Constitution of the United States, and to practice the teachings of the religion of Jesus. The real purpose of this study was to point out some of the efforts of the Negro church in dissipating what has been called the American dilemma. The Negro church is the innumerable groups of Negroes free from white control, who have assembled themselves together for worship and to improve their status in all phases of society. The Negro Church is represented by innumerable Baptists and Methodists because they constitute the largest number of Negroes. [TRUNCATED]
