Abstract:

Of all U.S. cities, Detroit has been among those hardest hit by the decline of American manufacturing and economic strength. Examining the impact on Detroit's African-American population, this film focuses on one institution that has provided the community with a sense of hope and renewal: the Shrine of the Black Madonna. The documentary is set within the framework of one powerful and provocative Father's Day service led by Jaramogi Menelik Kimathi, the Yale-educated church leader whose messages of self-sufficiency and Pan-African unity reflect the Shrine's core mission. Viewers also meet several members of the congregation and pastoral staff who share their own stories about life in the city's desperate environment and their ongoing spiritual journeys.
