Black liberation theology maintains that African Americans must be liberated from multiple forms of bondage social, political, economic and religious.

He claimed the black-power theologian’s goal is to tell the story of American oppression so powerfully and precisely that white men will “tremble, curse, and go mad, because they will be drenched with the filth of their evil.”
