Racism, Religion, and Responsibility
Murders and marches. Voter suppression and disenfranchisement. Public health crises and economic precarity. The events of the past few years have exposed yet again the depth and durability of American racism. America’s hands remain unclean.
As teachers and researchers, leaders and scholars, we have a professional and moral obligation to commit our time, attention, and resources to understanding racist systems and their histories and to forging solidarity with those suffering in them. We must take responsibility for ourselves and those in our care. To that end, Fortress Press highlights these books by influential Black theologians and thinkers. It isn’t a comprehensive bibliography. But it is a place to begin.
