Society for the Study of Black Religion Collection
Kelly Brown, a student at Union Theological Seminary of New York, gives a lecture as audience members (including Cornell West and Henry Mitchell) asks questions. In her lecture, Kelly Brown links racial and sexual oppression to patriarchy. She critiques Black and feminist theological responses to patriarchy by examining the positive and negative aspects of each in relation to the Black woman. Kelly Brown argues both revolutionary and reformist Feminist approaches to theology and Black theology (while containing positives) fail to take into account the religious experience of the Black woman. She also argues against the oppression of Black women in the Black Church in America.
