The Reverend Hannah E Atkins Romero of Trinity Midtown in Houston Texas interviews The Very Reverend Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas about her book, "The Black Christ". About the Book: In this classic work, first published in 1994, Kelly Brown Douglas offers a compelling portrait of who Jesus is for the Black community. Beginning with the early testimonies of the enslaved, through the writings and thought of religious and literary figures, voices from the Civil Rights and Black Power era, including Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X, up through the contemporary work of Black and Womanist theologians, Douglas presents a living tradition that speaks powerfully to the message of our day: Black Lives Matter.
The book can be found at.
