BLACK CHURCHES-SEXISM

DETROIT — A black pastor’s controversial eulogy at Aretha Franklin’s funeral laid bare what black women say they have experienced for generations: sexism and inequality in their houses of worship. The Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. declared that as “proud, beautiful and fine as our black women are, one thing a black woman cannot do — a black woman cannot raise a black boy to be a man.” Williams’ eulogy drew an immediate backlash and reopened wounds for many black women.
