George Alvarado, Chuck Ivey, and Michael Coughlin are joined by Virgil Walker from the Just Thinking podcast to discuss Black Liberation Theology and its connection to the Black Lives Matter organization. Many are not aware that Black Lives Matter has some of its roots in Black Liberation theology, making it a theological issue, not just a socio-political issue. So we decided to create this primer to help anyone who seeks to understand the theological underpinnings of this movement.

On this episode, we discuss: What is the history of Black Liberation Theology? Who was James Cone? What was his view of the atonement? Was he a heretic? What is the connection of Black Liberation Theology to the Black Lives Matter movement? How should we respond as Christians? And much more…
