A Historic Meeting: African & African Diaspora Women Convene in Ghana


At the conference in Ghana in July—a portrait of attendees

When I started seminary in the late 1980s, liberation theology still was influential. Liberationists’ arguments, often based in

Christian scripture and theology, so compelled theological discourses that class time in most US seminaries, divinity schools, and schools of theology engaged them, even if only to challenge their validity. During the late 1980s, womanist theology (a strand of US black liberation theology presenting perspectives by and about African American women’s experiences) was emerging, and transnational organizations linking liberationists were in full swing.

Impeccably dressed in all black and a crisp white shirt, he brushes back his shoulder-length dreadlocks as he mingles and laughs with fellow students on a recent freezing Wednesday morning.
