Sanctuary (Creating the North American Landscape) by Henry Louis Gates Jr.,Thomas Roma



Tom Roma's pictures of churches in Brooklyn are so good: so understanding of the comfort they afford and the central role they play in the poorest communities even more than in more affluent neighborhoods. Roma's photographs convey this without the sentimentality of special pleading; instead, they are modest and eloquent. Sandra S.

Co-authors Henry Louis Gates Jr and Donald Yacavone give a fascinating and detailed overview of this long, tumultuous, tragic, and very important part of American history

One of the things I like about PBS’ use of Henry Louis Gates, J. to work with different shows is that, as a historian, he gets to do different kinds of history. In Black In Latin America, for instance, he got to do a cultural and ethnic history of different countries, which was both interesting on its own and shed light on constructions of race in America. Finding Your Roots is slightly less successful when it goes into Gates’ personal history and pet projects. A digression involving supposed Native American heritage of the black men at his barber shop is a good way to deal with that stereotype, but doesn’t connect to Marsalis’ or Connick’s stories. I didn’t have the time to check out the further episodes in the series, which probably don’t have the connection to race that this one does.

"Sanctuary refers to a place of worship and a state of mind―but it also refers to the most sacred part of a Christian church, the site where the altar is housed. Thomas Roma's photographs locate these most sacred parts of the community within the larger context of Brooklyn's landscape, charting the triumphant efforts of generations to leave their mark, to make their way through the world of mammon and man, seeking solace within the city but far beyond it. They also reveal a persistent, irresistible determination to express spirituality within the often harsh landscape of the city, giving glory to God's resplendent being even through the often makeshift architecture of the storefront and the movie theater."―Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

In Sanctuary, acclaimed photographer Thomas Roma offers a compelling sequence of 52 black-and-white images that document the varieties of religious experience in Brooklyn as seen in the borough's sacred architecture. Juxtaposing pictures of grand Gothic and Romanesque churches photographed at a distance from backyards and alleys with more intimate views of smaller places of worship housed in converted storefronts and dilapidated brownstones, Roma subtly calls attention to issues of history and class, revealing how successive waves of immigrants have shaped Brooklyn's urbanscape and how the African-American and Hispanic communities living there now have worked to make these neighborhoods, culturally and spiritually, their own.

"From shabby storefronts to soaring cathedrals, from Iglesia Pentecostal Apocalipsis to St. Joseph's Roman Catholic, this photo book documents the churches of Brooklyn. In gentle black-and-white, against the trash and light of the city, Roma's pictures capture all the ways immigrants and citizens, rich and poor, have made homes for God in the harsh urban landscape."―Molly Marsh, Sojourners Magazine
