We Go To Church on Sunday
The church in Black rural communities across the South serve as a medium of praise, community, resistance, and survival. With the onslaught of COVID-19, churches have had to close the doors to their sanctuaries, leaving many without the binding thread of spirituality and community.
Through the voices and songs of a pastor and his congregation, the documentary film We Go To Church On Sunday explores the historical and and contemporary significance of Black church music and how people are keeping music, worship, and praise alive in the time of a global pandemic.
