Reclaiming Stolen Earth: An Africana Ecotheology (Paperback)
Reclaiming Stolen Earth demonstrates how the crisis of global climate change, like so many social crises, is an outgrowth of the most consequential problem of the modern era: the problem of "whiteness." Clark argues that an African-centered, or Africana, approach to theology reveals the ways that Black theology has radical ecological implications.
