AAAS 90.02 Prophetism in the Black World

This seminar utilizes historical, anthropological, and comparative religions perspectives to examine the relatively widespread phenomena of prophetism in the black world. We will explore the lives and prophetic careers of people who claimed direct revelation from a supreme being or lesser spirits in indigenous African religions, Islam, and African and African-American Christianity. We will examine such movements before European occupation as well as the colonial and post-colonial eras. We will also examine African-American movements from the period of slavery and the twentieth century. Topics will include women’s prophetic movements, religious critiques of underdevelopment, the process of inculturation of Islam and Christianity, and the role of religion in resistance to foreign or domestic domination.
