We discuss the long history of African-Americans finding their own identity in a religion imposed on them, how this community of Christians transformed a religion of oppression into a religion of liberation, what lessons Western-European American Christianity can learn from this transformation, and how to it without committing their favorite pastime of cultural appropriation.

We also smoke cigars, drink some whiskey, and drop a few F*bombs.
