Item description for Black Faith and Public Talk: Critical Essays on James H. Cone's Black Theology and Black Power by Dwight N. Hopkins...
When Cone wrote "Black Theology and Black Power," he signaled to the world that the American black faith tradition would no longer recognize the confines of the church walls as the extent of its purview in society. Cone liberated the Gospel of Christ from its institutionalized forms, unhinging it from oppressive and racist power structures in American society and releasing it to do its work in the public sphere. "Black Faith and Public Talk" continues Cone's theme of power in the public realm and examines the economic, political, cultural, gender, and theological implications of black faith and black theology.
