At their core, Black and Womanist theologies seek to dismantle theologies and social arrangements that contribute to the Black estrangement as a manifestation of cultural productions within the context of anti-blackness and misogynoir (misogyny directed toward Black women).  This course examines Black and Womanist theologies as modes of liberation and performances of freedom that materialize from the question of Black existence and identity in American life.  We will consider theological and hermeneutical motifs in the domain of Black and Womanist theologies, as well as the intersection of theory and praxis.  Offered as a graduate or undergraduate course.
