Empower the People: Social Ethics for the African-American Church

Out of such different voices as the political philosophy of Martin Luther King, black power, and black nationalism, the social science of William Julius Wilson and Nathan and Julia Hare, the music and dance of Stevie Wonder and the blues, black womanist theology, and the preaching of his own home church, Walker conducts a choir that is more than a chorus in a hymn that is more than a song. The words call for a common struggle for comprehensive social empowerment, black family by black family, and black church by black church, as he sets an agenda for the 1990s. The rhythm and the harmony are his own as, on occasion, is a clear and strong solo voice.
