These kinds of inaccuracies are unnerving to Rev. Barbara Reynolds.
Reynolds, a minister and former columnist for USA Today,teaches biblical studies at the Calvary Bible Institute in Washington, D.C. She said a lot of the influence of Africans in religious history is shrouded in secrecy. "I teach the black presence in the bible, and it's almost like a secret code that hasn't been broken." Victor I, the 15th pope, is the reason Easter Day is celebrated universally on Sunday, said Reynolds. A native of Africa, Victor I Reynolds said this religious history isn't just for black people.
