Call for Papers: 

Breaking White Supremacy

We invite papers that discuss Gary Dorrien’s 2017 book Breaking White Supremacy: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Black Social Gospel for a co-sponsored session at which Gary Dorrien will be a respondent. Papers might address such topics as the importance of Breaking White Supremacy in understanding the Black social gospel and continuing the work begun in Dorrien’s The New Abolition: W.E.B. DuBois and the Black Social Gospel (2015); the theological insights of the civil rights movement and the way those insights inform, critique, and are critiqued in contemporary settings by the Movement For Black Lives; the claim that the civil rights movement ultimately failed to break white supremacy, and the implications of that claim for communities working to break white supremacy today; and contribution of Breaking White Supremacy considered against the backdrop of Dorrien’s body of scholarly work.
