James Cone and Cornel West at AAR


This is a really great video and is a tribute to America’s greatest theologian James Cone and his black liberation theology. Cornel West feeds him questions, and Cone shares his history and theological development. Something that struck me is when West rightly claims that Cone is actually grandfather of liberation theology. He was writing his books on black liberation theology two years before Gutierrez published A Theology of Liberation.
