Dibble, Caroline, Religious Studies - Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, University of Virginia

In this capstone, I will explore the literary discourse of James Cone’s theological perspective through an analysis of Cone’s work between 1969 and 2018. This perspective, known as Black Liberation Theology (BLT), was established and developed by Cone over the course of his career both to bring attention to the contradictions of American democracy as reflected in white Christian theology and to institute a theology that spoke to the conditions of Black suffering under white oppression.
