According to a recent study conducted by the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation, black women are the most religious segment of the U.S. population.

9 out of 10 black women say they turn to God “as their spiritual guide in all areas of their lives.”

From NewsOne:

“According to the survey, 74 percent of African-American women state that living a religious life is of the utmost importance to them as opposed to 70 percent for Black men, while 57 percent of White women and 43 percent of White men share this priority.

When it comes to grappling with difficult situations, 87 percent of Black women said faith in God is vital, compared to 79 percent of Black men, 66 percent of White women, and 51 percent of White men.

Interestingly enough, those who pooh-poohed religion in the Black community were practically in a group all their own with only a quarter of Black women saying that religion was not an integral part of their lives and another paltry 2 percent declaring ‘not at all.'”
