By Sylvester A. Johnson

This e-book presents a story old, postcolonial account of African American religions. It examines the intersection of Black faith and colonialism over numerous centuries to give an explanation for the connection among empire and democratic freedom. instead of treating freedom and its others (colonialism, slavery and racism) as opposites, Sylvester A. Johnson translates a number of classes of Black non secular historical past to figure how Atlantic empires (particularly that of the U.S.) concurrently enabled the emergence of specific different types of non secular adventure and freedom activities in addition to demanding styles of violent domination. Johnson explains theories of topic and spirit that formed early indigenous non secular pursuits in Africa, Black political faith responding to the yankee racial kingdom, the construction of Liberia, and FBI repression of Black non secular activities within the 20th century. by means of combining historic equipment with theoretical research, Johnson explains the seeming contradictions that experience formed Black religions within the smooth era.
