Albert Cleage Jr. and the Black Madonna and Child

Full Product Description

In this collection, black religious scholars and pastors whose expertise range from biblical interpretation, theology, and psychology of religion, to preaching, religious aesthetics, and religious education discuss the legacy of Albert B. Cleage Jr. and the idea of the Black Madonna and child. Easter Sunday, 2017 will mark the fifty year anniversary of Albert B. Cleage Jr.'s unveiling of a mural of the Black Madonna and child in his church in Detroit, Michigan. This unveiling symbolized a radical theological departure and disruption. The mural launched Black Christian Nationalism and influenced the Black Power movement in the US. But fifty years later, there have arisen many questions about the legacy of this image. What has been the lasting impact of this act of theological innovation? What is the legacy of Cleage's emphasis on the literal blackness of Jesus? How has the idea of a Black Madonna and child informed notions of black womanhood, motherhood? LGBTQ communities? How has Cleage's theology influenced Christian education, Africana pastoral theology, and the Black Arts Movement? The contributors to this work discuss answers to these and many more questions.

Albert Cleage Jr. and the Black Madonna and Child by Jawanza Eric Clark was published by Palgrave Macmillan in March 2016. The ISBN for Albert Cleage Jr. and the Black Madonna and Child is 9781137546883.
