The article discusses the Christianity from an African American women's perspective owing to the history of conversion of the race by the colonial powers. It provides alternative paradigms for scholars engaged in feminist, ethnic and cultural studies, while questioning the revealed scriptures, intra-textual theologies and its perpetuation of cultural values. It suggests evaluating the ascendance of a distinct feminist philosophy of the religion in the Euro-American context.
