James Hal Cone and the 50th Anniversary of Black Theology and Black Power

The issue foregrounds the intellectual legacy of Cone and also examines the broader scholarship on #AfricanaReligions that has emerged through the paradigm shifts that Black liberation theology embodies—liberationist political movements, Black consciousness, anticolonial movements, and religious activism rooted in social justice. The essays include attention to the transnational dimensions of Black liberation theology, its historical emergence, and the implications for multiple alliances of social justice that advance a critique of power and that privilege accountability to marginalized communities. Each essay demonstrates in its own way why scholars must continue grappling with the way resistance to structural oppression shapes Africana religions.
