    Abstract:
    The Reformed tradition helped provide the rationale for Southern slavery and for South African apartheid. If Reformed theology is going to speak to the racial issues of our day, it must come to terms with the tradition of Black theology. Some Reformed evangelical theologians have begun to engage with the insights of Black theologians, but they have done so very selectively. Reformed Evangelicals need to learn from the theological imaginations of such Black theologians as James Cone and Allan Boesak. By doing so, they can undermine the tradition’s racist legacy and unleash its liberative potential.
