Dr. Sandra Yocum
In this thought-provoking and moving interview, Dr. Brown speaks about his appreciation of faith and culture as matters of an intensely personal, but also communitarian and societal, nature. Discussing his teaching and mission work as a Professor and Pastor, Dr. Brown illuminates for us the communitarian key in which African spirituality, both on the continent and in the diaspora, is cast, and how that relates to the religious and moral meanings of black protest. Dr. Brown closes his discussion with a reflection upon the intensely powerful and even shocking hope which comes from faith in an ever-present God.
