What is the distinctive character of ministry among African-American youth, and to what particular circumstances should that ministry respond? Proceeding from W. E. B. Du Bois’ description of Black “double consciousness,” this article explores the challenges and hopes for identity formation with African American youth in response to the persistent realities of racism and conflicting cultural forces that impact their senses of self. The author proposes that the Church’s primary responsibility to these youth be informed by theologian Howard Thurman’s notion of “whole-making,” the foundational human desire to be in both interpersonal and intrapersonal community.
