Item description for Preaching for Black Self-Esteem by Henry H. Mitchell...
Overview Two powerful preachers--one the Dean of black preaching, the other a gifted young black preacher--combine to offer a boost to the self esteem of African Americans. Mitchell and Thomas begin by defining the need for ethnic self esteem and trace it through the history of Africans and Americans. They then offer a positive theology of ethnic self-esteem. Two sample sermons are included.
"What's goin' down? I know you don't expect a seventy-five year old man to talk all that talk. . . "
A strong and much needed book addressing black youth today, Preaching for Black Self-Esteem is geared to a generation of black men and women who can--suggests the authors--proudly face issues such as caste systems, one's own physical characteristics, feelings of ambivalence and inferiority, and even 'buppies'--economically upwardly mobile Blacks.
A very powerful collection of sermons for a generation of Blacks coming of age after the Civil Rights era.
