Afro-Eccentricity: Beyond the Standard Narrative of Black Religion

by William David Hart

Palgrave Macmillan | April 26, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Not yet rated | write a review
Hart explores four distinctive contributions to the discourse of Black Religion against the counterpoint of the Standard Narrative of Black Religion as the "Black Church." Three overlapping versions of the Standard Narrative - Souls, Church, and Ancestor - dominate scholarly and popular accounts of Black Religion. Charles H. Long, William R. Jones, Cornel West, and Theophus Smith variously revise, circumvent, or otherwise break free of the confines of the Standard Narrative, thus providing a richer and less church-bound account of Black Religion. Though affirming their Afro-Eccentricity, Hart does not hesitate in raising questions about their work through narrative and discourse analysis.
