About the Book

Slavery Religion and Regime challenged us to question the basis of a society founded on freedom for the elite and the subjugation and enslavement of natives and imported victims of slavery and slave-trading. The purpose of this book is to establish a critical theological interpretation of the interplay among the significant political, economic, and religious expressions of modernity in the founding of industrial societies then and today. The elite and justice for all while it heralds individualism, materialism, conceived in violence. The dehumanization process along with the killing of natives is a history that extends up to the present day,


About the Author

As one who was born and grew up in the South, I received my initial education in a Catholic elementary and high school. I knew very little more than my surroundings of the south and its racial biases and social controls. Upon finishing High School I felt called to theological studies, So I entered the Seminary in Upstate New York. This experience radically and permanently changed my life. For the five years, I engaged in summer internships, ministering among the victims of inner-city violence in Chicago. It was there that I realized that my life had changed forever. After that, for four years before Ordination to Priesthood, I committed my life to live in inner-city parishes in service of the poorest of the poor. After Ordination, my first parish assignment was in an innercity church in Baltimore. I left this initial parish assignment and went to work in a Home Health Center where I served the sick and dinging I did not last long before; I spent the next years living and studying for the Ph.D. in Theology: teaching for 28 years teaching Theology at the Xavier University of Louisiana.
