Jeremiah Camara’s documentary film “Contradiction: A Question of Faith,” examines the saturation of churches in African-American communities co-existing with poverty and powerlessness.
Camara, once a member of a large Black church in Cincinnati, Ohio, his hometown, came to believe that most churches were preaching a message of helplessness, the conviction his film explores.

This film is part of our series: Is the Separation of Church & State Coming to an End? The series is our Society’s response to recent attacks on a fundamental, constitutional principle at the heart of American democracy–the separation of church and state.
The morning after the film, on March 5, Jeremiah Camara will deliver his talk: “Does the Dominant Culture Have the Right to Criticize?”
All events in the series, co-sponsored by the Puffin Foundation, are at the Society’s meetinghouse, 687 Larch Ave., Teaneck, NJ. In addition, the talks are on Zoom.
Registration is not required for in-person attendance, but those who register will receive the Zoom link and a reminder of the talk.
