   schema:description ""Afro-Eccentricity explores three overlapping stories of Black Religion: the Soul, Black Church, and Ancestor Narratives. Hart contends that these narratives dominate most account of Black Religion that, collectively, he calls the Standard Narrative of Black Religion. Against the backdrop of this account, where Afro-Eccentricity is a pun and critical trope, Hart interprets Paule Marshall's Praisesong for the Widow as a battlefield between Afrocentric and Afro-Eccentric versions of the Ancestor Narrative. Then he explores four theorists of Black Religion--Charles H. Long, William R. Jones, Cornel West, and Theophus Smith--whose work pushes against the limitations of the Standard Narrative"--"@en ;

Three overlapping versions of the Standard Narrative - Souls, Church, and Ancestor - dominate scholarly and popular accounts of Black Religion. Charles H. Long, William R. Jones, Cornel West, and Theophus Smith variously revise, circumvent, or otherwise break free of the confines of the Standard Narrative, thus providing a richer and less church-bound account of Black Religion. Though affirming their Afro-Eccentricity, Hart does not hesitate in raising questions about their work through narrative and discourse analysis."@en ;
