Day Six: February 10, on Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month, I am recommending the following five texts on African American Religion:
- “The Black Church in African American Experience” by C. Eric Lincoln and Lawrence H. Mamiya
- “African American Religious Thought” edited by Cornell West and Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.
- “The Black Muslims in America” by C. Eric Lincoln
- “African-American Humanism: An Anthology” edited by Norm R. Allen, Jr.
- “The History of Black Catholics in the United States” by Cyprian Davis
*** Every day is Black History Month.
Every day we celebrate human beings created in the image of God.
Every day we celebrate the gift of life and the gift of black life because black people and all people MATTER to God.
