Journal of Religious Ethics 6 (2):187 - 220 (1978)
This paper argues that the American liberal tradition, as conventionally understood, does not supply a conception of racial justice adequate for the understanding and/or remedy of the in-justice presently suffered by black Americans, particularly in the economic realm. Joining an initial discussion of some contemporary indications of liberalism's limitations to a subsequent analysis of its role in the history of Afro-American religious thought, the paper argues throughout for a conception of racial justice that combines the historic concerns of American liberalism with an increased sensitivity to racial nationalism on the one hand and socialism on the other.
