- 170 Downloads
D. Kimathi Nelson shares his personal insights and reflections as one who studied and trained under Albert Cleage for 30 years. His reflections provide a unique insider perspective that reveals Albert Cleage’s theological evolution beyond the claims expressed in his two published works, The black Messiah and Black Christian Nationalism. Nelson conveys the black nationalism conception of God as cosmic energy and creative intelligence and his development of the Science of KUA, the Science of Becoming. The late Cleage wrote and spoke of a theosophic interpretation of reality that moved beyond the political dimensions of Black Nationalism in America. Nelson allows Cleage to speak for himself quoting at length from sermons and unpublished essays written after 1978.
