Abstract
The methodology of this research first examines biographical data of three noted political, civic ministerial leaders: the Rev Dr Martin Luther King, Jr; the Rev Dr Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, Jr; and the Rev Congressman Floyd H Flake. This biographical data establishes the need for political education to be taught in African American congregations, now and in the future. The conclusion reached in this study is that political education and human justice issues are a mandate from God. Action must emerge from the "talented tenth" or we as a people continue to perish.
