Format: Paperback
James Hal Cone (born 1938) is the founder of Black Liberation Theology, a Professor of Systematic Theology at Union Theological Seminary, and author of books such as Black Theology and Black Power, A Black Theology of Liberation, God of the Oppressed, etc. Gayraud Stephen Wilmore (born 1921) is a writer, historian, educator, and theologian who was a prominent figure in the civil rights movement.

Wilmore writes in his General Introduction to this 1979 collection of essays, "A few years ago James H. Cone asked me if I had considered editing a book for seminary students that would collect and appraise the various sources for Black Theology embedded in the history and culture of our people in the Americas and West Africa... This book is, in a way, a much less ambitious version of what Professor Cone proposed... Our purpose is threefold. First, we wanted to gather together the most significant documents of the Black churches and church-related movements which would present the origin and development of Black Theology... Second, we wanted to fill out the picture with articles and essays that presented the program of Black Theology, or played a significant part in setting Black preachers and scholars in motion... Finally, it was our intention to write the kind of critical commentaries that would reflect our own personal experience as participants in what transpired.
