God with Us

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter analyses the theological tenets present in the historical black church tradition undergirding freedom movements. It discusses the role of the church, black religious intellectuals of the 1920s-1930s and certain theologies—the creative authority of God, the idolatry of segregation, the exodus, the person of Jesus, and redemptive love. The chapter reveals how these animated early civil rights actions and activities in Americus.

Keywords:   Black church, Black theology, Black religious intellectuals, George Kelsey, Benjamin Mays, Howard Thurman, James Cone, Rev. J.R. Campbell, Rev. R.L. Freeman
