Raising Awareness of Racial Injustice

February 15, 2019 — Leave a comment


In the last month, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing Jemar Tisby, and then this week attending a talk he gave at a local university… 

Jemar Tisby is a historian and author of the new book The Color of Compromise: The Truth about The American Church’s Complicity in Racism. [ READ our review ]  As the way forward toward a culture of anti-racism, Tisby suggests the course defined by the acronym ARC: Becoming AWARE; Fostering deep interracial RELATIONSHIPS; and COMMITTING to act against the forces of racism. 

Following Tisby’s rubric, here are some books that will help raise our awareness, and orient us into committed patterns of action:

[ Awareness of the History of Racism
[ Awareness of Black Theology ]
[ White Authors Explain White Privilege ]
[ Vision for Anti-racist Action ]

Awareness of Black Theology
