Bob Bennett Lecture on Western Intellectual History and Black Presence in the Bible and Discussion of “Slave Religion the Invisible Institution in the Antebellum South”
Society for the Study of Black Religion Collection
Robert Bennett gives a presentation on Western intellectual history and the Black presence in the Bible. Bennett claims racism as a part of Western methodological study of the bible and Western intellectual history. He discusses the number of questions that can be raised from the bible. He also discusses the discoveries from his travel to the Nile and Jordan valley. Historical references to the Nile valley, and to the people and culture (Kushite, Egyptians, Ethiopians, Nubians and Hebrews) are made in relation to the African presence in the bible. At the end of the lecture Robert Bennett takes questions from the audience. Afterward is a brief critical review of the book “Slave Religion: the Invisible Institution in the Antebellum South” by an unidentified man. The book review is followed by review and questions from audience members such as James Cone.
