MS Teams meeting -

A paucity of theological reflection exists on British Christianity’s collusion with the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade (1600 -1834). Only one book published in the last 100 years by a British theologian ‘racialised’ as White. Why is British theology silent on this history? What are the implications for theological studies? This presentation breaks the silence by engaging in a postcolonial Black pentecostal exploration of African enslavement in the Caribbean. Underscored by theodicy, and supplemented by pentecostal epistemes (extemporaneous prayer, gospel music), the presentation contours a musicological framework (wake work) for ethnical remembering. Professor Robert Beckford is an activist academic based in Birmingham
