    • Race Patriotism: Protest and Print Culture in the A.M.E. Church

      Bailey, Julius H. (InSPIRe @ Redlands, 2012-05-30)
      Race Patriotism: Protest and Print Culture in the A.M.E. Church examines important nineteenth-century social issues through the lens of the AME Church and its publications. This book explores the ways in which leaders and laity constructed historical narratives around varied locations to sway public opinion of the day. Drawing on the official church newspaper, the Christian Recorder, and other denominational and rare major primary sources, Bailey goes beyond previously published works that focus solely on the founding era of the tradition or the eastern seaboard or post-bellum South to produce a work than breaks new historiographical ground by spanning the entirety of the nineteenth century and exploring new geographical terrain such as the American West. Through careful analysis of AME print culture, Bailey demonstrates that far from focusing solely on the “politics of uplift” and seeking to instill bourgeois social values in black society as other studies have suggested, black authors, intellectuals, and editors used institutional histories and other writings for activist purposes and reframed protest in new ways in the postbellum period. Adding significantly to the literature on the history of the book and reading in the nineteenth century, Bailey examines AME print culture as a key to understanding African American social reform recovering the voices of black religious leaders and writers to provide a more comprehensive and nuanced portrayal of the central debates and issues facing African Americans in the nineteenth century such as migration westward, selecting the appropriate referent for the race, Social Darwinism, and the viability of emigration to Africa. Scholars and students of religious studies, African American studies, American studies, history, and journalism will welcome this pioneering new study.

    • Racial Integration in One Cumberland Presbyterian Congregation: Intentionality and Reflection in Small Group

      Goings, Carolyn Smith (AURA - Antioch University Repository and Archive, 2016-01-01)
      Negative attitudes toward racial minorities and consequent maltreatment of non-Whites continue to be a crisis in America. The crisis of racism is still realized in phenomena such as residential segregation (Bonilla-Silva, 2014), health disparities (Chae, Nuru-Jeter, & Adler, 2012; Chae, Nuru-Jeter, Francis, & Lincoln, 2011), and in the not-so-uncommon unjust arrests and imprisonment of persons of color (Alexander, 2012). Improvement in race relations through the development of meaningful cross racial relationships in racially integrated settings is one avenue that may lead to reduction of racism (E. Anderson, 2010; Fischer, 2011; Massey & Denton, 1993). Christian congregations are common settings in America, and Christian teachings are primary sources of Western ethics and moral values. Historically, Christian practices have affected American attitudes such as with regard to elder care, have influenced legislation such as child labor laws, and have even swayed the contents of the United States constitution. Yet, racial segregation has been the norm in Christian congregations from the end of American slavery until today. Since there may be a relationship between the persistence of segregation in Christian congregations and the persistence of racism in America, racial integration in Christian congregations may impact racial attitudes and relationships. Using Participatory Action Research, this study explored ways to improve racial integration and race relations in Christian congregations. This study utilized volunteers in a 30-day exploration of racial integration in a congregation, a small church in one of the two Cumberland Presbyterian denominations. Data from observations, interviews, racially integrated events, reflection sessions, and participant journaling were collected and analyzed. Intentionality in racial integration in one congregation resulted in cumulative positive change, at times difficult and incremental. Findings revealed that adaptive, proactive leadership enabled cross racial dialogue leading to increases in transformative relations and learning.

    • “Racial Reconciliation as an Expression of Love in a Charismatic Congregation”

      Wilkinson, Michael; Althouse, Peter (Digital Showcase, 2011-01-01)

      Yong, Amos (Digital Showcase, 2006-03-01)
      The Radical Orthodoxy [RO] movement has been gaining increased attention and momentum in the North American theological academy. Its most recent spokesperson, James K. A. Smith attempts to extend the RO vision in dialogue with the Dutch Reformed tradition. Clearly, the central features of “Reformed” RO empower a kind of prophetic engagement with the cultural, political, ideological, and economic domains of late modern Western society. At another level, however, the globalizing features of our late modern world context mean that the dominant pagan deities are not just secularism, nihilism, or capitalism, but also, arguably, those of other religious traditions. At this level, I suggest that the program of RO, especially if accepted in terms of the reforms proposed by Smith, may be vulnerable to an authentic and sustained Christian engagement with the plurality of mythoi operative in the public square. Rather than undermining the Radically-Reformed project as revisioned by Smith, I propose a “pneumatological assist” and argue that a more robust pneumatological theology (actually suggested, but undeveloped by Smith) enables the kind of engagement that is required in our religiously plural late modern world.
