BBH2512 Course

Description: In light of the onslaught of anti-blackness in church, academy, and the public square, this course considers the potential of Black rage as a theological virtue and as a requisite moral standpoint for the tasks of justice-making. Students will engage classic and contemporary texts in black theology and black feminist theory to critically examine sublime fury as a “holy” and viable response to the moral problem of whiteness and its concomitant black suffering and death. Consideration of the praxis and insurgent aesthetics of black protest in the movement for Black lives will lend itself to the theoretical task of determining the nuances of eschatological hope as it emerges from the sacred interstices of secular black social witness.

Supervised Ministry Dates: 2/13, 3/13, 4/17 and 5/8; (9:30am – 1:00 pm)
