Black Church Studies Collection

The E.M. White Library houses a robust Black Church Studies (BCS) collection, comprised of both print and remote materials that support the Black Church Studies program at Louisville Seminary. These materials focus on the practices and theology of African American churches and other Christian practices throughout the African diaspora, and issues that affect the African American community. This collection is housed on the first floor, adjacent to the Reference Room.
