Ep 45 – No Weapon Formed Against Us: The Black Church and Oppressive Theology

This week Amber and Erika are joined by Reverend Mia Michelle McClain to discuss how weaponized theology combines with insidious White Supremacy and latent self-hate to render the Black Church socially and politically ineffective while also perpetuating harmful pathologies of pain and spiritual dysfunction. Pastor Mia helps us to challenge many long-standing beliefs held by Black evangelicals, in addition to offering insight into how the Black Church can reclaim its place as a center of empowerment, activism, and social justice.
