For My People
By: James H. Cone
"Spares neither kith nor kin, but addresses itself to the whole range of factors in North American religion which make for the traditional black church/white church dichotomy, and the spiritual and social consequences that attend it. For My People is a strong commentary on both the role and the vitality of black theology, as well as on the pervasiveness of the problems that sustain the need for it."--C. Eric Lincoln.
A classic of black theology which explores it's roots and History in church and society.
