Provocatively explaining the political and social phenomenon of white supremacy as a religion and providing a theology of redemption for disparaged communities affected by it, this book is a collection of personal and academic essays that challenge popular notions of American exceptionalism. A little bit of everything, a mixtape in the tradition of DJ Clue, episodic and rhapsodic, lifting a panoply of voices in an unexpected way, it wrestles with theology and philosophy alike, blending poetry with narrative nonfiction and memoir. It is a creation of a new and expressive literary experience that is as tragic and triumphant as the Black experience is in America—a groaning that cannot be uttered.
