Students explore one of the most provocative and award-winning books by Dr. James Cone on the relationship between the cross and the lynching tree. This book looks at how “the cross and lynching tree interpret each other,” throughout the black struggle for freedom—even today. This class will incorporate short lectures, panel discussions, and one-on-one interviews with scholars across the field of Black Theology and African American history.
