Black seminaries embrace hip-hop

It's hard enough to get young people out of bed and into the pews on a Sunday morning, but two leading black seminaries think they have found a way to grab the next generation: hip-hop. "If we're going to take young people seriously, we have no choice," said Alton B. Pollard III, dean of the Howard University School of Divinity. “When we talk about what's happening in the lives of young people, that's a subterranean culture that some of us just don't know how to get with."
