BLACK POWER AND BLACK THEOLOGY IN SOUTHERN AFRICA - RESPONSE: John W de Gruchy, Department of Religious Studies, University of Cape Town
AbstractI feel greatly honoured to have been invited by the organizers of this symposium to read a per on “Black Power and Black Theology in Southern Africa”. I am well aware of the fact that this is a controversial and often misunderstood topic, which invokes deep and strong reactions from many quarters. My task today will be one of giving you some information, which would help you to enter into a dialogue and come to terms with both Black Power and Black Theology.
