Rev. angel Kyodo williams joins Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas as one of the panelists on an online course on Dr. James Cone’s groundbreaking book Black Theology & Black Power.
From their website:
It has been more than fifty years since the publication of the Rev. Dr. James Cone’s groundbreaking book Black Theology & Black Power, yet the concerns and themes raised in this book continue to resonate today. Reflecting on his book, Dr. Cone wrote “I wanted to speak on behalf of the voiceless black masses in the name of Jesus whose gospel I believed had been greatly distorted by the preaching and theology of white churches.” Through this two-day course, the Very Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas invites students and community members to reflect and study Black Theology & Black Power in light of where the country and church are today and its transforming implications for our faith and actions.
