"All too often, Christians name a few individuals who stood against the racism of their day and claim them as heroes. They fail to recognize how rarely believers made public and persistent commitments to racial equality against the culture of their churches." ~

If you were impressed by Robert F. Smith and his financial gift of debt forgiveness to 's 2019 graduating class, then check out "Boss: The Black Experience in Business" where he features prominently.

When Paul wanted to encourage Christians he did not say that their breakthrough was around the corner, he helped them to make sense of their suffering in light of the coming reign of Christ. If we suffer with him, we will reign with him.

Say that, doc! This is why I chose the University of Mississippi to study race and religion. It's where the action is. Thankful for my advisors who are not only scholars and truth-tellers but activists in their own right.

OTD in 1954: Segregation in public schools ruled unconstitutional "We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.”

just added another 5 star review on Amazon. When I started to do it I was amused to see my purchase history. I forgot that I ordered it 13 times for Cru leaders in my area.

This house in Clarksdale sits on 3 acres with a pool. It’s listed at $210k, but I bet you could get them to come down. Your house in Oakland was twice as much, and you ain’t got no columns.

If you only knew how much house you could own in the MS Delta for what you’re paying in rent somewhere else.

Of course, change must happen on a policy level, too. Laws have to be written, revised, or taken off the books. Broad-scale racism and inequality must be attacked on a systemic and institutional level. But we need not denigrate praying and marching to make that point. 9/9
