Summary
The Peoples Temple movement ended on November 18, 1978 in their utopianist community of Jonestown, Guyana, when more than 900 members died, most of whom took their own lives. Only a handful lived to tell their story. Little has been written about the Peoples Temple in the context of black religion in America. Twenty-five years after the tragedy of Jonestown, scholars from various disciplines assess the impact of the Peoples Temple on the black religious experience
