Overview

In Black Conscious Rage, social justice advocate Sincere T. Kirabo scrutinizes some of the United States' most polarizing topics related to identity and cultural prejudice in an illuminating fashion, asking questions of race and religion. Recalling James Baldwin's famous proclamation, "To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a state of rage almost all the time," he articulates this ever-flaring indignation for a 21st-century audience, critiquing unjust social systems that continue to devalue, disenfranchise, and dehumanize large segments of the US population. Adding his own mark to a growing tradition of outspoken Black atheists, Kirabo explores the web of oppression that ensnares modern society, while challenging us to be our own salvation through human-derived justice, accountability, and reason.
