Product Description

Towards a theology of Holy Black Rage

Melinda Contreras-Byrd, ed.

 

This book is a compilation of essays by prominent theologians and scholars analyzing the experiences of Black people in the U.S. and the historic and ongoing impact of systemic racism. In this instance how do we understand the anger, holy black rage that has inflamed and enraged the American pubic since the murder of Mr. Floyd. As one of the contributors Dr. Charles Boyer says: “Black rage is the equal and opposite reaction to unjust public policy. The outrage expressed in the streets is the rage most Black people feel but do not express externally or publicly. Black Christians seek peace, nonviolence, and reconciliation, yet Black Rage is an unquenchable fire shut up in our bones. That rage consumes us daily. We try to contain it, but the trauma weighs on our mental and physical health. Doc Rivers, head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, expresses our outrage perfectly in just a few words “It’s amazing, we keep loving this country, and this country does not love us “
