Dr. Robinson A. Milwood is a Methodist minister in Stoke Newington, London. Dr. Milwood’s specialised academic subjects are Biblical Hermeneutics and Liberation Theology. He is an academic supervisor for MA and PhD students in Theology with various institutions. Dr. Milwood is engaged in further research in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, its psychological and spiritual impact on Africa and African descendants globally, with the absence of collective consciousness and the legacy of dysfunctionalism.
Dr. Milwood was for some time a senior part-time lecturer in Biblical and Religious Studies for Birkbeck College – University of London. He believes passionately that the context of black people sociologically, politically, economically and theologically is a direct result of the slave trade. Economic and technological reparation must come from European governments, Britain and the USA. Juxtaposed to political governments, the major Christian denominations must make appropriate reparations because the churches are morally accountable for their active involvement in the slave trade, especially in using European and British vacuous cultural – semantical cultural Christianity in the process of the dehumanisation and animalisation of Africans and the blatant brainwashing of the plantation slaves with the support and enforcement of fear, whipping and brutality.
