In today’s times it is not unusual for a pastor to pen a book. However, it is quite unique when a pastor pens a book that reads much like a textbook that is vital to understanding the culture known as the black church. Dr. Kurt S. Clark, Sr., does just that in his new book “Invisible Institution and Empire: A Culture of Resistance in America."

Clark is the Pastor of Sardis Missionary Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL. It is there, in the church’s 250-seat theater, that he will be promoting his new book on March 15, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. The signing will include a viewing of what is being described as a mini-documentary concerning the new book. It features an in-depth interview of Dr. Clark as he shares his views on the topics of the book.
