Doctrine of Discovery and the African American Experience: Rejecting White Theology in Pursuit of New Wine Skins

This weekend, I had an opportunity to present at “This Land is My Land? The Gospel of Conquest and the Church.” In the presentation, I discussed how the Doctrine of Discovery relates to the African American experience of slavery and capitalism, one of the pillars of white supremacy. I also discussed the role in forming a new theology in freeing the American church from this colonized worldview, moving us all to a place of freedom, reconciliation and love.

I also encourage you to listen to the rest of the discussions from the conference, in particular the plenary by Mark Charles which was amazing. Here are the remaining audios >
