In honor of new PBS series The Black Church: This is Our Story, This is Our Song, join WHYY as Thomas Allen Harris, host of Family Pictures USA, speaks with congregants, church leaders and community members to delve into their personal experiences of the church as a vital part of their lives. Through stories and photographs, Harris and guests will examine the important role of the church as a foundation for community.

Featuring interviews with Oprah Winfrey, John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, Cornel West, Bishop Michael Curry, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Bebe Winans and more, new PBS two-part series The Black Church: This is Our Story, This is Our Song reveals the broad history and culture of the Black church and explores African American faith communities on the frontlines of hope and change.
