Likewise, Moroccan explorer Ibn Battuta mentions Christians in Nubia (an area that covers present-day northern Sudan and southern Egypt) in his 14 Century, ultimately mining the region for Africans to enslave, the historical narrative shifts which is perhaps why many associate the religion most with Europeans to this day. Leslie King-Hammond, historian, artist, curator and Dean of the Maryland Institute College of Art, observes, “many of the Africans who came to the New World, probably had already had contact with Christianity from missionaries who were stationed on the Continent.” Once in America, many Africans faced a confusing range of options with respect to the religion.While some slaveholders encouraged conversion to Christianity, others did not.“Christianity was a double-edged sword [for African-Americans],” says Dr. Mamiya, Professor of Religion and Africana Studies at Vassar College and co-author of The Black Church in the African American Experience.“On the one hand, well, Whites wanted to use Christianity to make slaves docile and obedient.“The first Black senator elected to Congress was the Reverend Hiram Revels of Mississippi, an AME clergyman.And you’ll see that tradition continue.” He cites Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr.That’s why a lot of Christians limit their dating pool to other Christians, Muslims with Muslims, and Jews with Jews, etc.In the words they might marry outside their race, but not outside their faith.
Mamiya points out, “Black churches helped to create the first Black banks, the first Black[-owned] life insurance company.” Mamiya puts the connection the phenomenon of Black clergymen/politicians in historical context.[On the other hand,] the Africans adapted Christianity for their survival and liberation.” But long before colonialism and slavery, Africans were practicing Christianity.“We know that Christianity has had a long history in Africa itself, pre-dating any kind of European influence,” Mamiya says.At the end of Genesis chapter 27 and the beginning of the 28th Chapter, we see Jacob’s parents, Rebekah and Isaac lament over the idea that he would marry a Canaanite woman: Genesis And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?
Genesis 28:1 And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.
Christianity’s explosion across Africa led many to call for the Vatican to select a successor to Pope Benedict from the Continent with Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson among the suggested shortlist.
