Judson Press to Publish Looking Back, Moving Forward from the Sankofa Institute
By: Judson Press
Looking Back, Moving Forward is a collection of lectures from prominent African American professors, pastors, and academics affiliated with the Sankofa Institute for African American Pastoral Leadership, at Oblate School of Theology, through which the Institute offers graduate degrees. Founded by Sister Addie Walker, the Sankofa Institute offers interdisciplinary and multidimensional programs for the academic and professional development of pastoral leadership.
The programs focus on this key question: "How do we look back to learn as we move forward to celebrate and build new social relationships for our families, religious believers, communities, and the world?" While the Institute features annual lecture events, it is more fundamentally a process, which the book describes as, "Steeped in spirituality, relishing our cultural heritage, aware of political forces, and keen on the economic realities of the twenty-first century."
"The project focuses on how the black church remains a key to building healthy communities and individuals and it offers visions and concretes on how to get there," notes the editor, Dwight Hopkins. The volume features well-known voices, including Allan Boesak, Cheryl Kirk-Duggan, Alton Pollard III, J. Alfred Smith Sr., and Reggie L. Williams.
The publication https://www.judsonpress.com date is set for August 2018.
