Interview on Race in American Religion and Culture with Amaryah Armstrong

Amaryah Shaye ArmstrongAmaryah Shaye Armstrong is Assistant professor of Race in American Religion and Culture at Virginia Tech University. Her research combines the fields of Black Studies, American Studies, Political Theology, and Continental Philosophy of Religion in order to explore the relationship between religion and the reproduction of race in the aftermath of the European colonization of the Americas. In our conversation, we talk about  Armstrong’s academic background and the relationship between concepts of Christian peoplehood, racism, and the language of reproduction. We also discuss the great historian of the black radical tradition Cedric Robinson, the protest movement against antiblackness that erupted across American cities over the last year, and being a worker in the contemporary University under conditions of  capitalism.
