In this volume a group of eminent African American scholars of religious and theological studies examine the problems and
prospects of black scholarship in the theological academy. They assess the role that prominent black scholars have played in
transforming the study and teaching of religion and theology, the need for a more thorough-going incorporation of the fruits
of black scholarship into the mainstream of the academic study of religion, and the challenges and opportunities of bringing
black art, black intellectual thought, and black culture into predominantly white classrooms and institutions.
