This chapter examines where, why, and how black and white evangelicals historically occupied the same worship space but were, ironically, divided based on religious arguments. This chapter shows that despite the historical white anxiety and fear about black and white miscegenation, the growing number of multiracial families sounds a hopeful note for the future of multiracial congregations. The chapter concludes that the historical meanings ascribed to black and white physical bodies may be redeemed as evangelicals reconsider what it means to participate in the multicolored corporate body of Christ.

Keywords:   black evangelicals, white evangelicals, multiracialism, sex, multiracial congregations, multiracial churches
