Most Influential Black Spiritual Leaders 2

The Rev. Floyd Flake

The Rev. Floyd Flakeā€™s message of self-help and community responsibility is perhaps best exemplified by the success of his church the Greater Allen A.M.E Cathedral, a more than 25,000-member congregation in Jamaica, Queens. Flake, a former U.S. congressman, has been instrumental in netting government grants to revitalize his church's neighborhood and build affordable housing for the surrounding community. As president of Wilberforce College, the first historically black Christian college in the nation, he has also used his political savvy to help pull the school out of debt.
