Abstract:
This article looks at the American Missionary Association's objectives in eastern North Carolina where teachers and ministers had come from the North to establish missions among the former slaves after the end of the Civil War with a particular focus on the missionaries' method of religious expression as well as the junctures where northern Congregationalism diverged from southern black Protestantism.
