Black Lives and Sacred Humanity

Full Product Description

Identifying African American religiosity as the ingenuity of a people constantly striving to inhabit their humanity and eke out a meaningful existence for themselves amid harrowing circumstances, Black Lives and Sacred Humanity constructs a concept of sacred humanity and grounds it in the writings of Anna Julia Cooper, W. E. B. Du Bois, and James Baldwin. Supported by current theories in science studies, critical theory, and religious naturalism, this concept, as Carol Wayne White demonstrates, offers a capacious view of humans as interconnected, social, value-laden organisms with the capacity to transform ourselves and create nobler worlds where all sentient creatures flourish. Acknowledging the great harm wrought by divisive and problematic racial constructions in the U.S., this book offers an alternative to theistic models of African American religiosity to inspire newer, conceptually compelling views of spirituality that address a classic, perennial religious question: What does it mean to be fully human and fully alive?

Black Lives and Sacred Humanity by Carol Wayne White was published by Fordham University Press in May 2016. The ISBN for Black Lives and Sacred Humanity is 9780823269815.
