To provide a survey and an analysis of the many different theologies preached and practiced by the Black churches in the Diaspora from the days of the European enslavement of Africans ("The Invisible Institution") up through the 21st Century. To compare and contrast the broad range of theologies found in Christian congregations (and denominations) on the Continent of Africa with Black Christian Churches in the Diaspora.
Special emphasis will be given to the diversity of Black Christian theologies and the widely disparate and textured experiences of Africans under colonialization on the Continent and chattel slavery in the Black Atlantic. Taking seriously the 'four" Black Americas in the United States described by Eugene Robinson and the issues of class as explicated by Kerri Day, the course will examine the reality of the fact that there is no "monolithic" Black church or Black theology.
