Voice of the Day: James Cone

By the Web Editors 2-21-2014
You have to be black, with a knowledge of the history of this country, to know what America means to black persons. You also have to know what it means to be a nonperson, a nothing, a person with no past, to know what black power is all about. Survival as a person means not only food and shelter, but also belonging to a community that remembers and understands the meaning of its past. - James Cone James Cone, A Black Theology of Liberation + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail
