The Million Man March in Washington, D.C. remains a major landmark in the journey of the African-American community. Attended by controversy, it fired the imagination of African-American males throughout the country. Black Religion after the Million Man March brings together a range of Black theologians -- men and women -- to assess the spiritual and theological issues posed by this event and, of greater importance, its implications for the future.

Essays in the first part wrestle with conflicting reactions to the March itself -- including sharply critical perspectives. The second part addresses the theme of "manhood". The third part considers the themes of responsibility, atonement, restoration, reconciliation, and renewal. Together, these essays provide a challenging agenda for Christians committed to African-American liberation.
