Description of Essay Content
The essay will address one aspect of the Black Church documentary that aired on PBS. I will provide the links below of the documentary. Because the documentary was roughly four hours with many layers of storytelling, you are to identify only one topic to address in this paper and place it in conversation with one (and only one) of the ethical theories. The ethical theories you are to choose from are Deontological Ethics, Utilitarian Ethics, and Virtue Ethics. Do not choose any other ethical theory discussed in the class or elsewhere; only these three options are available choices for this assignment.
You can choose one person, theme, or problem lifted up in the film. To help you in this matter, I have provided options below. You are not limited to the options below, but whatever person, theme, or problem you identify must have been covered in the documentary.

Ike’s message of prosperity. Does Rev. Ike’s theology fit utilitarian ethics and is it something you recommend we follow?
