Empowerment Ethics for a Liberated People: A Path to African American Social Transformation

by Cheryl J. Sanders. Fortress Press, 1995.

Cheryl Sanders sharpens the agenda of black liberation by offering both a fresh reading of historical black religion and a distinctive approach to Christian ethics. Arguing that the experience of oppression has been a catalyst for black moral life and thought, Sanders traces several paths that African American Christians have taken in moving from victimization to moral agency: testimony, protest, uplift, cooperation, achievement, remoralization, and ministry. Informative and engaging, earnest and constructive, Sanders' book envisions a new way of empowering people to take responsiblity for their moral and spiritual development.
