James Cone: Black Theology and Black Power in 2020

Two-Day Online Workshop   |   October 9–10
It has been more than 50 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. This course is offered by Lifelong Learning at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York. The course is taught online over two days, October 9 and 10.
