MWAMBAZAMBI, Kalemba. A missiological glance at South African Black theology. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2074-7705.

Black South African theologians created South African Black theology during the late 1960s and early 1970s as a conscious and theological dimension of the liberation struggle against apartheid. They drew inspiration from African-American theology, biblical hermeneutics and the raw material of their own experiences and suffering, whilst simultaneously creating a new theological paradigm and political orientation to liberate Black South Africans from apartheid and European domination. Inevitably, South African Black theology was a liberation theology aimed at helping to eradicate the existing socio-political order. This article gave a missiological overview of Black theology and examined and assessed the relevance of this theology to contemporary post-apartheid South Africa. The critical-theological research method was used.

Palabras clave : Apartheid; Black theology; Christian mission; liberation; South Africa.
