The spirit of black radical traditions, at their best, can turn the world upside down and help usher in a political economy of dignity, voice, and decision-making power for working-class communities. Liberationist streams of black radical spirituality are as contemporary as Alice Walker’s call for democratic socialist womanism, as old as Reverend George Washington Woodbey’s Black Baptist socialism and beyond.
The next discussion in the DSA Religion and Socialism Working Group's monthly series of webinars will feature Rev. Andrew Wilkes and Rev. Sekou, artist, author, and public theologian, in conversation about the ethical and religious streams of the black radical tradition on Thursday, November 19th at 7:30 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The conversation will cover origins of the tradition and its implications for our present moment.
