I am recommending this because, although it is radio, it covers race and religion, and a very good friend of mine (who shall remain nameless!) is behind this.

Cut and pasted from the BBC Website:


Father, Son and Holy Ghost is a new play from award-winning playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah about a young, radical pastor whose rising church career is under threat.

Pastor T - a young, funky, self-taught pentecostal minister of an urban church - is well-known for taking no prisoners, and not just in his sermons. His biblical radicalism, youthful energy and street-smart image is attractive to young and old alike, and he has helped build up a thriving church community.

Originally 'saved' from prison life by the church bishop, Pastor T is next in line to take over when the older man retires. The pastor suspects the bishop of financial misdealings, putting his conflicting loyalties to the test. And when one of Pastor T's young church pupils is threatened on the street, he takes some radical action which threatens his future at the church.

The radio play stars David Harewood as Pastor T. It is based on an original idea by Dr Robert Beckford.

And, of course, if you miss it on Saturday you can catch it on the BBC iPlayer.
