Policy and Poetry: The African American Religious Imagination and Social Transformation

2018 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religion
November 18
Denver, Colorado

African American religion has played an invaluable role in shaping public policy debates in the United States and abroad. A sobering truth, however, emerging from many social justice movements is that legislation cannot combat all dimensions of inequality and prejudice. Many manifestations of inequality and prejudice remain locked behind the steel doors of the most gated house—the human heart. Those doors are often pried open slowly by another persuasive dimension of African American religion—“poetry.” By poetry, we mean various aspirational, symbolic, and artistic expressions not limited by the sometimes deadening exactitude of “policy speak.” This interactive roundtable discussion, sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution’s Center for the Study of African American Religious Life, will feature diverse, religiously-inspired “poetic” performances. These performances will accentuate the significance of embodiment and aesthetics in the epistemologies and social change theories of Africana people.

4 SOUNDBITE: (English) Bishop John Chane, Episcopal Diocese of Washington:
“I think it leaves Gene Robinson from my point of view with the women of the Episcopal church, who likewise are not permitted to exercise their authority as bishops in the Church of England. And one of the things that I think is unique about the Anglican communion is as difficult as it is and as untidy as it is, it gives provinces the opportunity to at least make a local response, as painful as that might be. But I think those painful responses gives us the opportunity to begin the kind of intensive dialogue we have to engage in and again coming back to the report today and that statement contained now gives us the opportunity to really look at that and see how we can live within a new order of life within the communion.”

“Our one concern is that the gay U (gay union) is like, introducing a new religion into this part of the world and that we do not succumb or accept social religion. And so that is why the Church of Nigeria has broken relationship with Ecusa (the Episcopal church).”
11. SOUNDBITE: (English) (no name) member of congregation, Archbishop Finning Memorial Cathedral
“My understanding of what the doctrine says is that, God opposes any relationship, sexual relationship, between men. It is supposed to be between men and women.”

19. SOUNDBITE: (English) Reuben Lethabane, member of congregation at Saint Augustin Anglican Church:
“There are so many people who are for the gays and there are so many people who are not, who are against gayism, so therefore I would rather prefer not to have a gay person in the church because I personally think it will split them.”

Thank you for watching this ultimate Kenyan street food tour in Nairobi! I met up with my friend James who took me around to a few of his favorite spots to eat.

Kawangware, Nairobi, Kenya

Here’s most of the food we tried on this amazing tour of Nairobi:

Ann Restaurant – Dagoretti Corner – This small street food stall on Dagoretti Corner in Nairobi serves all sorts of Kenyan / East African foods. Their chapatis are especially good, and their Lake Victoria sardines fried with tomatoes.
Dagaa – Lake Victoria sardine
Matumbo – stomach stew
Githeri – beans and maize
The guy sitting across the table – “you should not eat beans and sardines together, or you’ll have gas.”
Total bill – 1,050 KES ($10.39) – we paid for 4 or 5 guys eating there

Stomach Clinix – This was the best food stop of the day, a neighborhood meat shop that James took me to that specializes in cow head soup. The grilled tongue was also spectacular, but the soup was the best.
Total price – 200 KES ($1.98)

Dagoretti Market – After the meat, we took a walk over to Dagoretti Market. After browsing around for a while, we stopped for another plate of mixed Kenyan food, mostly dengu, which are mung beans. It was simple, but quite good.
Dengu – mung beans
Total price – 300 KES ($2.97)

Unity Cafe Hotel – We met up with some of James’ friend in Kawangware, and went to eat across the street from their shoe shop. The mandazi mix was the highlight of this Kenyan meal.
Total price – 600 KES ($5.94) for all

Cow foot fry – Next we headed over to Oscar who makes cow food soup, fry and boil. He was a very friendly man, and showed me his entire process of making cow foot soup. It was delicious!
Total price – 450 KES ($4.45)

Kenyan street food – To end this Kenyan street food tour of Nairobi we had to eat one of the ultimate Kenyan fast food meat treats. You’ll see these types of grills all over the streets in the late afternoon throughout Nairobi. You just choose what you want, it’s cut on the chopping board, and you stand and eat.
Mutura – minced meat sausage
Mutura – blood sausage
Total price – 200 KES ($1.97)

Thank you for watching this ultimate Nairobi street food tour!

In 1898, White Supremacists Killed 60+ African Americans in One of Deadliest Mass Shootings in U.S.

Views:26538|Rating:4.63|View Time:30:53Minutes|Likes:839|Dislikes:68
– The Las Vegas attack on Sunday has been called the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Bishop William Barber joins us in studio for an extended interview to discuss another, less known mass attack: the infamous Wilmington massacre of 1898, when white supremacists seized armed control of the North Carolina town and killed at least 60 African-American residents, drove hundreds more out of town, burned down the local African-American newspaper and installed a former Confederate officer as the new mayor. Barber also discusses gun violence and violent policies in the aftermath of the Las Vegas attack.

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Bishop Claude Alexander, The Park Church: “The fear is real and it’s multi-generational. My two daughters — 12th grader, 8th grader — didn’t want to go to school today. My 8th grader, going to school, cried on her way. That’s real. And, it’s going to take a minute to absorb what all that means.”

12. SOUNDBITE (English) Eric Heberlig, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte: “I think, in the end, African American turnout was about where they expected it to be. It was slightly lower than 2012. But, given that it wasn’t President Obama on the ballot, I think most people expected some type of falloff of African Americans and young voters. I think it was more super enthusiasm from rural voters on behalf of Trump that drove the difference.”

“He hasn’t always been a Republican. He hasn’t always been a Democrat. But, he has always been a man with an ego and he’s always been a businessman. He’s got the background to make again this country economically viable. He’s got the opportunity to do some things that no other president has done before in trade agreements. He has the opportunity to bring the Congress together and work together. If he can do those things I think this country will experience economic success and everybody will benefit from it.”

The footage illustrates a little known piece of history and includes footage showing entire black communities visiting one another’s country homes, parading through downtown Muskogee in some two dozen Packards, crowding an enormous church in Tulsa not long after the riots, gathering at the National Baptist Convention, and traveling to Europe. It includes black cowboys riding horses amidst oil derricks rising from their ranches.
