James Cone, The Cross and the Lynching Tree, July 26-30

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries between three and five thousand African-Americans were lynched in the South. They were lynched by white Christians. My guest, Dr. James Cone, the Charles Augustus Briggs Distinguished Professor of Systematic Theology at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York, in his latest book, The Cross and the Lynching Tree makes the connection between the lynching of African-Americans and the execution of Jesus.  Listen to this important conversation about race and religion in America on Religion For Life.  Dr. Cone is the author of 12 books including Black Theology and Black Power and A Black Theology of Liberation.
