When liberation theology began

I’ve seen your magazine on the newsstands for several years now, and was always intrigued by the covers, but it wasn’t until the March/April 2008 issue, with your cover story on MLK, that I purchased a copy. Not only did I enjoy the MLK article (I studied MLK, with a focus on his radicalism, while a grad student at Union Theological Seminary), but I ended up reading the entire issue, cover to cover. It was great to find a publication dedicated to radical thought that was not rusty, dowdy, or stagnant in its material, presentation, or outlook. One question: It appears one of your editorial focuses this year is 1968. Any plans on doing an article on liberation theology, which started that year and went on to shake the foundations of institutions, both religious and secular, and which continues to reverberate today, as even a glance at the current presidential campaign will attest?

Keep up the great work!
