For the African American community, W.E.B. DuBois sees the Negro church as an important image for the African American community. African Americans utilized the African American church to build up their beliefs and their aspirations, even though the Negro church was used to boost the capitulation of white people. One of their aspirations was to be free from the wrongdoings during the time. The African Americans also expected they would achieve all their desired civil rights. African Americans made their own religion of Christianity. They believed on three things that represented the slave religion of Christianity. One was the Preacher, which was the center of the Negro church. The second one was the music, which they will sing at the church. The third one is the Frenzy, in which African Americans shouted when the Spirit of the Lord passed by them.
