Sample text

Presenting the nature of Latino/a culture and identity, historical and contemporary, has always been a central motive of all Latino/ a theological writings. It is at the heart of what Latino/a theologians describe as doing theology latinamente. By foregrounding identity, Latino/a theologians attempt both to give voice to the particularity of Latino/as’ religious faith experiences and to distinguish their own theological contributions. However, as the following section makes clear, the construction of Latino/a identity within Latino/a theology has actually limited our understanding of the true nature of Latino/as in their fullness and diversity.

Coupled with the theological climate of the late sixties and early seventies, the ground was fertile for Latino/a theologians. Like all theologies that are grouped or labeled under a heading, Latino/a theologians share various foundational insights and loci. However, there are also vast differences in the approaches, norms, and sources of the individual thinkers. In other words, when one speaks of Latino/a theology one must be mindful of the plurality of theological voices that are placed in this broader category.

Though downplayed, there are a few mentions of Latin Americans in black 38 / Afro-Cuban Theology theologians’ historical scholarship. Most often, however, the narrative of black history is written “in English,” ignoring Spanish-speaking blacks. This can be attributed to the heavy Protestant emphasis of black theology; black Latino/as and Latin Americans emerge from traditionally Roman Catholic countries. However, even Roman Catholic black theologians seemingly ignore their Spanishspeaking brothers and sisters.
