I’d be happy to suggest some scholars!
Unfortunately this list is going to be very small, and limited to mainly Black, Latina, and East Asian scholars working within the U.S. This is because A) my concentration is Latinx Religious Social Ethics B) the GSFS Religion classes at my school usually only do a weeklong section on either Womanist Theology or Asian-American Feminist Theology (even the classes that are supposed to be “multicultural” or whatever mostly have readings that are white feminist critiques of PoC communities and religions).
But of course followers are welcome to jump in and add their suggested readings and broaden all of our horizons! This is a VERY short list of the many WoC Religion scholars out there!
Also note: most of these scholars were influenced by WoC (like Gloria Anzaldúa and Alice Walker) who weren’t necessarily theologians, but their terms are central to a lot of ethical and theological praxis.
