Through lecture and dialogue, biblical narrative and academic discourse, prayer, and ritual, “Theories of Liberation by and for Oppressed Women”, examines fundamental principles of Womanist/Mujerista theologies to disclose implications for liberation and faith formation.
There has been considerable debate regarding the necessity of perpetuating a Black womanist theology/ethic in an “post-racist” and “post-sexist” state. However, the lived experience and scholarship of African American and Latin American women bear witness that the alleged “post-racist” and “post-sexist” state is but an illusion. Moreover, because womanist theology is a touchstone for numerous liberation theologies of minoritized and marginalized women in the United States and abroad, the proposed absence of womanist thought has implications for liberation theologies of women of color around the world. African American womanism and mujerista theology bring together elements of womanist/feminist thought, Latin American liberation theology and cultural theology, to stands against the forces of injustice manifest in racism, sexism, and classism.
