Monique Parsons of "Day to Day" has interviewed Curtis Evans, Jalane Schmidt, myself, and various others at the AAR, and prepared a nice report on the history of African-American Christianity as well as current discussions of the term "the black church" -- click here for her radio report. Hat tip to Randall for sending me the link.

In other news: Ralph Luker has posted his extended review of David Chappell's Stone of Hope --it's from a conference paper a few years back, and continues the dialogue that Chappell takes up especially in his extensive footnotes and bibliographic references for his work.

Meanwhile, H-SHEAR is running an extended series of essays about and critiques of Daniel Walker Howe's What Hath God Wrought, the one and only work of American history that I know of that is dedicated to the memory of John Quincy Adams. The series of reviews essays is introduced here. Various prominent historians take up different angles on the work -- most relevant for this blog, see Manisa Sinha on slavery and race in the book, and next week Bertram Wyatt-Brown will post his response on religion and reform (I'll put the link up when it's available).
