Faith In The HoodSeries Website »
Faith in the Hood is a compelling portrait of the inner city, seen through the prism of the spiritual life of its people. Southeast is the poorest neighborhood in Washington, D.C. with only one sit-down restaurant. But it has hundreds of churches and ministries. The film profiles five of them: a street ministry for former convicts and drug addicts, a socially activist storefront church, a powerful Afro-centric church, an evangelical camp for young people, and an Islamic elementary school. With insightful commentary from leading experts on African American faith, the film demonstrates the richness of inner city religion and its centrality as a defining aspect of black life.
