James Hal Cone is one of the most well-known advocates of Black liberation theology. In 1969, Cone's book Black Theology and Black Power articulated the distinctiveness of theology in the Black Church. More recently, he is the author of The Cross and the Lynching Tree, and he says that " ... an abiding faith in God is what enabled Black people to survive slavery." He is a professor at the Union Theological Seminary in NYC.

Anthony B. Pinn is a professor of humanities and religious studies at Rice University, and his work focuses on liberation theology, Black religion, and Black humanism. He says that an African American humanist approach "requires the end of God talk." His most recent book is The End of God-Talk: An African-American Humanist Theology.
