Christian theology animates leftist political action. A conversation among socialists, the Christian Left, fellow travelers and beloved comrades.


Danté Stewart - Shoutin' in the Fire

Danté Stewart joins the conversation this week to discuss his forthcoming book Shoutin' in the Fire: An American Epistle. We discuss his experience growing up as a young Black man in white evangelical spaces, what it cost him and what it meant for him to lean in to his roots. Danté discusses the ways Black theologians from James Cone to Toni Morrison to James Baldwin brought him back to loving and embracing his own blackness in a world views him as a threat.

This very personal conversation includes Casey's and Danté's paean to their wives and features the cooing of Danté's youngest (Casey's small children take the week off from their cameo roles).
