The Black Christ

25th anniversary edition

by Kelly Brown Douglas

In The Black Christ, Beginning with the early testimonies of the enslaved, through the writings and thought of religious and literary figures, voices from the Civil Rights and Black Power era, through the contemporary work of Black and Womanist theologians, Douglas presents a living tradition that speaks powerfully to the message of our day: Black Lives Matter. In a new introduction, she offers a moving account of the questions that motivated her work, and an overview of where those questions have since led her.
