Achieving the Black Social Gospel

Achieving the Black Social Gospel

(p.1) 1 Achieving the Black Social Gospel
Breaking White Supremacy

Gary Dorrien

Yale University Press

The black social gospel advocated protest activism within religious communities to resist America’s system of racial caste. Dorrien’s previous book, The New Abolition: W. E. B. Du Bois and the Black Social Gospel, described the 19th century founding of this tradition as a successor to the abolitionist movement. The New Abolition ended just as King’s models of social justice ministry entered the story. Breaking White Supremacy describes the black social gospel luminaries who influenced King and the figures of King’s generation who led the civil rights movement.
