EXPELLED AND PERIPHERAL: THE RESISTANCE OF THE BLACK MARGINALISED MAJORITY AND THE CALL FOR A NEW LIBERATION IN POST-APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA

Itumeleng Daniel Mothoagae

Abstract


 

One of the fundamental quests of Black Liberation Theology was integrated citizenship. It is for this reason that its resistance to apartheid theology and hege-mony was a call for liberation of the marginalised majority. Through its theological reflections it challenged the dominant ideology of the time. In post-Apartheid South Africa there is still a need for Black Liberation Theology to engage and challenge those who continue to be economically privileged. In doing so, Black Liberation Theology resists the continual exploitation, marginalisation of the poor, and proclaims liberty to the oppressed through radical voices and praxis. In this article I will focus on the confrontations and contributions of Black Liberation Theology in a country that is characterised by corruption, maladministration, self-enrichment, protests and unemployment. I will also discuss the role of Black Liberation Theology as an active participant in public discourse. This includes the realisation of socio-economic and integrated citizenship.
