In honor of Black History Month and the 50th anniversary of the late Dr. James H. Cone's Black Theology and Black Power, the Emmaus Scholars Program at Hope College and Maple Avenue Ministries in Holland, MI are sponsoring a community-wide book study on this groundbreaking work in Christian theology.

Written in the wake of the rebellions in Newark and Detroit in 1967 and the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, Black Theology and Black Power was Dr. Cone's first attempt to "identify liberation as the heart of the gospel," and it launched his academic career as the founder of Black liberation theology.

The study will meet every Thursday from February 14 to March 14, and it is open to Hope students, staff, and faculty, as well as community members.

WHEN: Every Thursday, February 14 - March 14 (5 weeks)
WHERE: (two options!) On-campus discussion group - Thursdays at 11:00am at Hope College, Lubbers 220 (and 222, if needed) Community discussion group - Thursdays at 6:00pm at Maple Avenue Ministries, 427 Maple Ave, Holland, MI 49423
