The new Pew Research Center study Faith among Black Americans examines a wide range of religious experiences, including congregational life, personal religious beliefs and practices, and the role of religious beliefs and institutions in public life. With over 8,000 Black American respondents, the survey is large enough to examine the rich diversity of Black religious experiences, including African immigrants, Black Catholics, young adults, religious unaffiliated Black Americans, as well as partisan and gender differences. In addition, the study incorporated focus groups and interviews with clergy to offer more depth and nuance to the findings.
