I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown

From a powerful voice on racial justice, an eye-opening account of growing up Black, Christian, and female in middle-class white America, I’m Still Here is an illuminating look at how white, middle-class, Evangelicalism has participated in an era of rising racial hostility, inviting the reader to confront apathy, recognize God’s ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness–if we let it–can save us all.
