Ecowomanism : African American Women and Earth-Honoring Faiths Paperback / softback

Part of the Ecology & Justice series


Scholarship on African American history and culture has often neglected the tradition of African American women who engage in theological and religious reflection on their ethical and moral responsibility to care for the earth.

Melanie Harris argues that African American women make distinctive contributions to the environmental justice movement in the ways that they theologise, theorise, practice spiritual activism, and come into religious understandings about our relationship with the earth.

Incorporating elements of her family history to set the stage for her argument, Harris intersperses her academic reflections with her own personal stories and anecdotes. This unique text stands at the intersection of several academic disciplines: womanist theology, eco-theology, spirituality, and theological aesthetics.
