This books attempts to address one of the ongoing weaknesses of Black Theology, namely the difficulty of converting theoretical and epistemological insights into practical service for Black people, the majority of whom reside outside of the academy. Whilst Black Theology, has, like a number of theological movements had its formative nurturing within the academy, it would be wrong to doubt the practical dimension of this discipline.
Dramatizing Theologies combines Black theology with dramatic, dialogical sketch material in order to produce a more accessible and democratic approach to undertaking Black theological conversation.
This "Participative approach to Black God-talk" surmounts the seeming chasm between the academy and the church and grassroots communities. Dramatizing Theologies offers a carefully worked through methodology for undertaking Black theological discourse with poor, marginalized and disenfranchised people by means of an interactive and dynamic approach to theology in the form of drama. It is, therefore, an essential text for all those whose desire is to be in true solidarity with those who are the "voiceless" in the world.
The main script on which this study is based is entitled My God!, which in addition several other dramatic pieces, encapsulates many of the nascent themes of Black theology within a dramatic form.
