James H. Cone, in his book, The Cross and the Lynching Tree, references lots of songs, art, and poetry. For the convenience of anyone reading the book who, like me, might want to hear and see...

Check out the introductory books, and then, I recommend regular reading on one or more of the websites listed here. And if you really want to dig into Scripture, be sure...
