Product Description

Black Religion and Black Radicalism has established itself as the classic treatment of African American religious history. Gayraud Wilmore demonstrates the extent to which the history of African Americans can be told in terms of religion, and to what extent this religious history has been inseparably bound to struggle for freedom and justice. from the story of the slave rebellions and emancipation, to the rise of Black nationalism and the freedom struggles of recent times, up through the development of Black, womanist and Afrocentric theologies, Wilmore offers an essential interpretation of African American religious history for students of religion, history, and Black and cultural studies.
Among the additions to this revised third edition are an entirely new chapter, exploring the African roots of African-American religion, as well as thoroughly updated chapters on the state of Black theology, the Black church, and the struggle for freedom today. Gayraud S. Wilmore has taught a range of schools including the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, New York Theological Seminary, and Colgate Rochester Divinity School.
