“Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters”: The Role of Spirituality in African American Environmental Activism in the US South

The application deadline for this year’s Antipode Foundation Scholar-Activist Project and International Workshop Awards is looming large – 31 May 2019. This is the seventh year the Awards have been available, and since making the first in 2013 the Foundation has spent almost GB£500,000.00 on some brilliant workshops and projects, including Ellen Kohl and Priscilla McCutcheon’s workshop in 2017, “Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters”: The Role of Spirituality in African American Environmental Activism in the US South.

We are pleased to present here seven essays from participants of the workshop, which took place at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky, in April 2018. We think they make a fine collection – a fitting testimony to the value of the workshop, and a provocative intervention in discussions ongoing in and around the journal on race, environmental activism, and spirituality. Many thanks to Ellen and Priscilla (who are assistant professors in Environmental Studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and Geography at the University of Kentucky respectively) for all their work organising both the workshop and this symposium.
