Christianity has been both the cause of oppression among Black communities and a source of liberation. Black Christianity has sought solace in the redemptive figure of Christ in its struggle for human dignity and freedom. 'Working Against the Grain' addresses the displacement of Black theology in Diasporan African churches by charismatic and conservative neo-Pentecostalism. The essays present a radical Black theology that empowers disenfranchised Black people whilst challenging White power to see and act differently. 'Working Against the Grain' is an essential text for all those interested in the pursuit of racial justice and other forms of anti-oppressive practice, both inside the church and beyond it.

AIDS, Sexuality, and the Black Church: Making the Wounded Whole is a revealing account of AIDS activism within Black churches in New York City. AIDS has taken a devastating toll on the Black community. Blacks make up approximately 13% of the total United States population, but almost half of all those infected with HIV in the U.S. are Black. Previous research has claimed that these high rates are due, in large part, to the lack of an immediate response by Black Church leaders and officials when AIDS first began to strike Blacks in the early 1980s. The Black Church can play a major role in providing AIDS education to its parishioners and community. However, feeling uncomfortable with addressing sexuality and homosexuality, many Black churches have simply avoided addressing AIDS believing that such conversations were inappropriate for church. As a result, The Balm in Gilead was formed in 1992 to encourage AIDS awareness among Black religious institutions. The Balm in Gilead is now the largest organization to work exclusively with the Black Church to promote AIDS education and awareness. In AIDS, Sexuality, and the Black Church, Angelique Harris examines the formation of the Black Church AIDS movement and the organizational development of The Balm in Gilead. This research begins from the perspective that the Black Church is working to address AIDS, and details how this work is being done. Harris couches her findings within social movement theory, the sociology of health and illness, social marketing, and the social construction of knowledge. This text provides a unique lens through which to examine AIDS discourse within the Black community. AIDS, Sexuality, and the Black Church is essential reading for AIDS scholars, researchers, and community activists alike.

A Philanthropic Covenant will feature eight essays from several prominent African American grantmakers, scholars, activists and clergy that will examine critical elements of modern philanthropy and how they affect Black communities for good and for ill.

A Philanthropic Covenant is intended to inform individuals, grantors, religious organizations, fundraisers and youth how philanthropy--time, talent and treasure--can be strategically mobilized to assist Black communities in dealing more effectively with the issues outlined in The Covenant with Black America. Throughout the book, emphasis will be placed on the role, responsibilities and potential of African Americans and African-American philanthropy, in particular, to affect positive change in their own communities.

This reader is an introduction to the relevant history, current issues, and dynamics of select minority groups in the United States. While previously written books on these topics usually confine their group coverage to African Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Pacific Islanders, and American Indians, this volume expands the number of groups examined to include those previously noted, plus Jewish and Muslim Americans. First, the significance of globalization on individual, group and national identity is examined. Then, the social impact of immigration and the common experiences of immigrants are considered. Later chapters review the historical, legal, and political experiences of each aforementioned group as well as their attitudes and behaviors. The two-fold objective of the book is to provide students with the prerequisite information to evaluate the importance of race, ethnicity and religion for understanding the outcomes of American politics, in particular to help them seehow the structure and operation of our political system sometimes obstructs the efforts of these groups to gain the full benefits of freedom and equal treatment promised under the American Constitution. One of the advantages of this reader is that the contributing authors belong to the minority groups that they write about, but they also are all credentialed experts in their field of expertise, with advanced degrees in political science, sociology, history or religion. Thus they are able to draw upon the experiences of a group of people that they are intimately familiar with, while at the same time using the rational systematic approach of social scientists.
