Incubator: Black Liberation Theology
James H Cone has stated there can be no theology of the gospel which does not arise from an oppressed community.
The Christianity of the Black Church has produced perhaps the most vital and robust religious expression in American culture. The theological expressions developed by the thinkers, artists, and practitioners of the Black church offer many gifts, ranging from sharp prophetic critique, practical social movements, beautiful art and music, and internal contemplation that offers, in the words of Womanist theologian Barbara Holmes, “joy unspeakable.” The long witness to the Good News by Black theologians offers crucial spiritual, moral, and intellectual nourishment to all Christians who encounter it, from both inside and from outside the Black Church. Their witness is as robust as ever. It is also as needed as ever.
