The course of this story goes back from 1960 and completes its journey in our current year 2003. The stories that you are about to read are the lived experiences of African-Americans who are either attending K College or Alumni of K College. All stories are different. Contrary to belief, we as a people all share different perspectives. Yes, we may share similar skin tones, have the same texture of hair or possess comparable physical characteristics, but we are all different. There were two sample groups: graduates from Kalamazoo College and my current generation of students. By interviewing several individuals from both generations, I will compare and contrast their experiences. As the title reflects, it is my opinion that through faith, believing in and having a relationship with Jesus Christ has sustained African-Americans while attending Kalamazoo College. In order to thoroughly present this point-of-view, we must visit the history of the African-American religious experience. Please go with me as we revisit events of the past that have directly affected the African-American community. There is a history behind the faith of African-American people in the United States. Is it possible that the tradition of believing in God has been a legacy for us as a people or have times changed? Please, come venture with me...
