Detoxifying the Black Church | Dr. John Kinney on Making Black Lives Matter

10/29/2020
It’s like we - Black poeple - are stranded in the wilderness and don’t know it… It’s like we are stranded in the wilderness and have reconciled ourselves to that position… Has the Black Church kept us stranded in the wilderness? Why is it that the Church hasn’t been able to guide us through the wilderness by now? Dr. John Kinney, Professor of Theology and Former Dean of the School of Theology at Virginia Union, joins us to speak about where the Black Church is in the struggle for the...

Martin on the Mountain: What did King See?

10/22/2020
It's a long way to go when you don't know where you're going…You don't know where you're going when you're lost. That’s what the late great Guru of Gang Starr said on Hard to Earn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLKmXovPVP8 Do we Negroes know where we are going? Don’t just get upset at the seeming audacity of my question. But think about it…dare to answer it: Do we know where we are going? What is freedom? Where is the Promised Land? In Eucharistic fashion, walking in love as Christ loved...

Black Prophetic Preaching: The Mattering of Black Life & Making America Great

10/15/2020
We could recreate the Garden of Eden from whence we were out-cast… We could indeed become the Beloved Community and forge A More Perfect Union, on earth as it is in Heaven… There really could exist a reality in tangible form where “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” It could be possible…here in America. But White folk would have to repent of White Supremacy. Not just pass some legislation to...

Current Black Leadership Ain’t Gon Lead Us to Freedom…

10/8/2020
The people were in exile in the wilderness. They had been in bondage for over 400 years, but now they were free. They hadn’t yet arrived at the Promised Land, but at least they were free. Or so you’d think… Because the people craved the land of their oppression. They longed for the days when they were close to their earthly masters. Massa might have been mean and violent, but “we sat by the pots of meat and ate bread to the full!” The missed the comfort of their slave quarters. The...

The Last Hope for Black People in America?

9/24/2020
Even before the Grand Jury decided not to indict the murderers of Breonna Taylor, I already had to get my mind right... The Governor of Florida had just floated a bill to legalize the use of cars as an assault weapon for vitriolic White Supremacists who dislike protesters. I mean... The reality that people can even consider such inhumane actions... And why would I even want to reason with people who demonstrate such deft wickedness? Why reason with those who make it clear the lengths they're...

So…we just coping through Life while waiting for Death?

9/18/2020
The ancestors ain’t wait for death like this… They knew no help was coming. Living in a Society that condoned their bondage… A Society that agreed with Black Inferiority, and the proper place of Negro Servitude… They could run… But running was extremely risky, especially from the Deep South. Seeing those who didn’t make it, mutilated and beaten to a pulp, served as a deterrent too many… So, they hoped for death. The Great By and By. Freedom in the sky. The only freedom on which they could...

What is Justice when there’s no Knowledge of Self?

9/10/2020
In the Black Church, we often speak of Social Justice. It is the component of the Gospel to which we most appeal. It is the thing we choose to use in order to distinguish ourselves from the White Church… Social Justice… But, is that the right distinction to choose? Yes, the Black Church is far more concerned with social justice than the White Church. The White Church can barely commit to social justice. They spend time arguing on whether Jesus had any social efficacy. As if Jesus’ Life in...

Sankofa and Anamnesis: Do Black People Really Want Freedom?

9/3/2020
We speak of the Civil Rights Movement... Of the legacy of the struggle. Of how far we've come - by faith...leaning on the Lord. But have we really? Have we come this far because we've been leaning on the Lord? Or have we been leaning on another lord? Do we remember the God of our fathers and mothers? Do we remember the promises God made to them? Do we remember the promises God made to us? Do we remember freedom? Do we remember what freedom is? We damn sure should know what it isn't... With...

The Church as an African Construct

7/26/2020
If you understand this truth, you will also understand the ridiculous absurdity of Black people learning Church from Whiteness... The ridiculous absurdity of Black Church being subordinate to White Church...relegated to a sub-category of "Church," where we have to say BLACK Church, and simply saying "Church" becomes confused with being White. The very existence of a Black Church and White Church comes about because we fail to understand the point of this conversation. So, check out this...

Will the Black Church Step Up in these times of White Supremacist Vitriol?

7/10/2020
Blessings beloved! I believe that if we move the Black Church, we move the Black Community...we move individual Black People. So, I continue my inquiry into what is needed for and from the Black Church in these times of heightened danger for Black Life. This time I speak to a fellow Episcopalian. Now, before you stop right there saying: "man, I ain't listening to two 'Black' Episcopalians!" Let me also say this: he's a fellow dread. #Rastafari And so you know the conversation gon be an irie...

Where is the Justice? Questions in following the Black Church

Man-oh-Man! It's been a journey getting back into the swing of things... The last episode of Blacks with Power came out in May of 2018. It's been OVER TWO years... I've forgotten a lot...how to set up all my equipment. How to record properly. How to post episodes... If podcasting is like riding a bike, I've fallen all over myself and skinned my knees! But, I'm back!!! LOL I couldn't NOT have something to say in these times. When Black Lives are being turned upside down, Choked out...shot...

White Supremacy will only end at the hands of Black Power

5/15/2018
When it all comes down to it, the end came is dismantling White supremacy... There is no justice in this world... There is no Beloved Community, so long as White supremacy has breadth. Right? But how do we put White supremacy to an end? Can we just wait on White folk to end it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mggph8o_RNM&feature=youtu.be In this last episode for the Spring 2018 season, we'll explore why Black Power is the only thing that will ultimately dismantle White supremacy. If White...

Black Redemption: The Foundation of True Racial Reconciliation

5/1/2018
All the talk about racial reconciliation ignores the role of Black redemption. And, without Black redemption there is no way to achieve racial reconciliation that is anything more than further conditioning Black people to become reconciled to their own oppression. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85e0LZH4_4g I'm sold that racial reconciliation can only happen as a result of Black redemption. That's why, when people ask me what I speak/present on I say: "Black redemption and racial...

Wakanda & Ethiopia: The Myth and the Hope of Black Power

4/17/2018
Wakanda forever was the cry... But forever is such a very long time. And our attention spans are so short. Yet, there's such hope in Wakanda-mania. It shows us the great potential of when a myth becomes reality... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRfXhazPdS8 I enjoyed Black Panther... And by box office numbers, it seems most of us did... Beyond the movie, what was very powerful was the countless Black folk proclaiming "Wakanda Forever!" Especially coming from the Black elite... I mean, you...

Black Christianity is the Authentic Christian Witness of America

4/3/2018
Black Christianity is different from White Christianity... Shouldn't be...but it is. It's the reality created by the sin of White supremacy. But more than simple conjecture...beyond simply throwing out some charged statement, what is the basis of this claim? What makes this claim undeniable? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RB8nad-vSJ0 The way #BlackChristianity was cultivated makes it the authentic #Christian witness of the West & gives us a particular responsibilityTweet This "Slaves be...

Ancient Egypt & Lessons on Black Identity in America

3/20/2018
Ancient Egypt, the Sphinx, the Pyramids... They are incredibly fascinating and draw us back to the greatest civilization. All "great civilizations" of the West have modeled themselves after Egypt. Ancient Egypt serves as the foundation for the idea of greatness. And it's greatest lesson for Black Identity might also be the most disturbing... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9JelHgDWgA But what else do we learn from Ancient Egypt? What do we learn about ourselves as Black people in America...

Black Power Mission: Dismantling White Supremacy

3/6/2018
In publishing my book, Black Power: Our God-Given Call to Make America Great, I ended up taking a hiatus from producing this podcast. And that hiatus has helped reframe the show in transformative ways! And in this episode, I share how those changes will be transformative for you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA2tC8AvyWo We've got to be more intentional about everything, if we're going to be prepared for the political and economic struggles facing Black people in America and beyond.

Afro-Latinos: The Forgotten Hispanics…the Forgotten Blacks

1/16/2018
Afro-Latinos...how many times do you consider the in the equation of #BlackLivesMatter? When Hispanic groups ask for Black American assistance in their fight for equality, do you take stock of the issues from the perspective of Afro-Latinos? It's a conversation we definitely need to have... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kSuOVaYvj4 When I worked on Capitol Hill, I focused heavily on the issues affecting Afro-Latinos. So, I'm familiar with the issues. And it's always been baffling that...

Public Health, Policy & Black Empowerment with Okey Enyia

12/4/2017
Public Health concerns are a critical piece to understanding the complexities of the Black experience. It's part of the issue that keeps us from creating a cohesive socio-economic political agenda to advance the Black community. Consider it like this: who can think straight when they are sick? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v0SSqC2XmA And like Malcolm said, Black people in America are "sickest of all politically." That sounds hyperbolic...sounds like exaggeration. But, look at our social...

Fear of a Black Identity

11/19/2017
Black identity has always been threatening to American Society. It's long been debated and suppressed. Black folk ourselves are the worst purveyors of this fear of a Black identity, because at several checkpoints in our American sojourn we have - en masse - encouraged each other to deny our Blackness in favor of the "American melting pot." And this fear is the subject of a recent FBI report that should have us concerned. (Article continues below) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zJi2pTVuLo...
