Black theology , or black liberation theology , refers to a theological perspective which originated among African-American seminarians and scholars, and in some black churches in the United States and later in other parts of the world. It contextualizes Christianity in an attempt to help those of African descent overcome oppression. It especially focuses on the injustices committed against African Americans and black South Africans during American segregation and apartheid , respectively. Black theology seeks to liberate non-white people from multiple forms of political, social, economic, and religious subjugation and views Christian theology as a theology of liberation: "a rational study of the being of God in the world in light of the existential situation of an oppressed community, relating the forces of liberation to the essence of the Gospel, which is Jesus Christ ", writes James H. Cone , one of the original advocates of the perspective. Modern American origins of contemporary black theology can be traced to July 31, , when an ad hoc group of 51 concerned clergy, calling themselves the National Committee of Negro Churchmen, bought a full page ad in The New York Times to publish their "Black Power Statement", which proposed a more aggressive approach to combating racism using the Bible for inspiration. In American history, ideas of race and slavery were supported by many Christians from particular readings of the Bible.

By Birchett, Colleen. Philadelphia Tribune ; Philadelphia, Pa. Such movements and their related theologies have by now had a major impact on American culture. However, relatively few people recognize or acknowledge that all of these theologies were inspired by what Rev. James Cone had already articulated about what God has said about the liberation of African Americans. That is one among many reasons that James Cone is now acclaimed as one of the most brilliant and significant prophets of the 20th and 21st centuries.
First published in , Black Theology and Black Power is the first systematic presentation of Black Theology that also introduced the voice of a young theologian who would shake the foundations of American theology. Relating the militant struggle for liberation with the gospel message of salvation, James Cone laid the foundations for an interpretation of Christianity from the perspective of the oppressed that retains its urgency and challenge today. I wanted to speak on behalf of the voiceless black masses in the name of Jesus whose gospel I believed had been greatly distorted by the preaching and the theology of white churches.
