This final document represents the culmination of a project that was designed to address the problem of the lack of access to “information technology” in the African American community, also known as the “Digital Divide.” The first part of the project involved establishing a computer center at the Mount Zion Baptist Church of Germantown in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The second part involved developing a course of instruction and putting together a workbook on computer basics. The design, implementation, and evaluation of the model were based on participatory action research methodology. This project serves as a model of social crisis ministry.
