- “One Church, Many Tribes” by Richard Twiss
- In this book, Twiss relates the pain of the Native people and, specifically, the marginalization and rejection of Native culture within the Church
- “Being White: Finding our Place in a Multi-ethnic World” by Paula Harris and Doug Schaupp
- A great resource to begin understanding what it means to see white culture, to understand the implications of a majority culture, to understand an introductory definition of “white evangelical”. If you’ve never considered race before or come from a background promoting “not seeing color” you should probably start here
- “Let Justice Roll Down” by John Perkins
- The story of one of the foremost black pastors engaging race and the gospel in the deep south during and following desegregation. Heart-rending and eye-opening to the realities of a history and system of racism as it affects individuals and communities in our nation
- Kingdom Diversity Podcast by Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
- Truth’s Table: a Podcast of Black Christian women taking on politics, race, gender, culture, etc.
