An African Element in the Black Etic of Liberation 

The Black Ethic of Allan Boesak was developed in South Africa in the 1970’s. It was an answer to the serious challenge of apartheid. With the concept of black ethic Boesak wanted to reestablish the African religious tradition and the African communalism, which includes both fullness of life and wholeness of life. The black ethic opposes western individualism and Calvinist theology. Especially the African communalism is strongly witnessed by many African theologians. Boesak argues that Gods righteousness leads to liberation for black people and to reconciliation, which only can be fulfilled when black and white people are equal.
