Genome: [r4 Bd=19921003]

When Bobbie Jean Fann drives to her Southern Georgia churches to preach on a Sunday morning, she goes past the fields where she used to pick cotton as a child and through the town where she was the first black magistrate.

She has seen riots, rocks and revolution. The church she belongs to is the African Episcopal Church, founded by a slave in protest at the way blacks were treated in white churches. But her vision is of an American South where blacks and whites can live and worship side by side, and what drives her always is the Gospel - spoken and sung the word of God which the prophet Jeremiah once likened to Fire shut up in my bones. Producers Roberta Berke and Piers Plownght Stereo
