Yesterday, Gross interviewed two scholars of Black Liberation Theology, and she did exactly what the show does at its best, namely bringing to light the real background information that is driving current events--events only covered in a shallow way by the media. The first interview is with James Cone, who originated Black Liberation Theology, a professor at Union Seminary in New York City. The second one is with Dwight Hopkins, a professor at Chicago Theological Seminary, and a member of Trinity United Church of Christ, where Jeremiah Wright was minister. Both give a detailed understanding of this theological viewpoint and provide a context for the words of Jeremiah Wright--words that have been lifted out of their context within individual sermons and within their cultural context.
It's well worth a listen.
Grace and Peace,
