In The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Race in American History, thirty-six scholars investigate the complex interdependencies of religion and race through American history. The volume covers the religious experience, social realities, theologies, and sociologies of racialized groups in American religious history, as well as the ways that religion contributed to and challenged their racialization.
