Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Augustus Stallings, Jr. (born March 17, 1948) is best known as the founder of the Imani Temple African-American Catholic Congregation, an African American led form of Catholicism. He had been a Roman Catholic priest, but made a public break with the Roman Catholic Church on the Phil Donahue show in 1989 and was excommunicated the next year. Stallings, Jr., was born on the 17th of March, 1948, in New Bern, North Carolina, to George Augustus Stallings, Sr., and Dorothy Smith. The youthful George was exposed by his grandmother, Bessie Taylor, to black Baptist Church worship, and enjoyed it so much that he also desired to be a preacher. He would later find this desire realized in his own Church, the Roman Catholic Church, by becoming a priest. George was very Afrocentric from a young age.
