Black Theology: Coming Soon...

This semester I'm doing a self-directed study of black theology, and part of my "homework" will be blog posts on my reading.  Look forward to reflections on James Cone, Keri Day, and Monya Stubbs.  If I can get away with it: Cornel West and Michael Eric Dyson, too...

Should be fun.


By the way, I jumped into Google to grab an image of one of these books and it was terrifying what my search brought up.  Images of Muslims, "supposed" terrorists, and lots of pictures of Barack Obama looking angry, with quotations from James Cone and Reverend Jeremiah Wright.  To be sure, white Christian America appears terrified of an articulated black theology because it undermines the outrageous narrative that white, first world Christians are an oppressed people.
