Be Filled With the Spirit, Storefront Churches
Be Filled With the Spirit is a dynamic look into the traditions of the black storefront churches as photographed by noted social documentary photographer, Milton Rogovin.
Encouraged by renowned African-American sociologist Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois, Rogovin photographed the storefront churches of Buffalo, New York for three years. The images are filled with the movement and expression of worship. With music and preaching recorded at the services, the energy of Rogovin's photographs come to life.
Featuring interviews with Alton B. Pollard III, Dean of Howard University School of Divinity and Milton Rogovin, this film will draw you into the storefront churches and leave you wanting more.
