Calling All P/WOC Allies: It’s Time To Connect!

"In the United States, black and brown people are not and will never be "equal" until America deals openly with it's ugly past and most importantly,  until white America accepts their part in this history: the truths that are left out of our school books, in internet searches, etc.." -Zanetta Holley

Oghene'tega Swann

The Imported Christ vs The Real Jesus of Cuba

"As I continue in my research, I remember that although the imported Christ infiltrated Cuba, the indigenous Jesus can be still be found beating in the hearts of 'los humildes'—the truth and the beauty of this Jesus somehow still penetrated the island of my ancestors, my family." -Kat Arma

How To Be A People/Women of Color Ally

Dark & Lovely: Is God In It? A Reflection on the 2018 Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Schaff Lectures on Race, Gender and the Imago Dei

"The Shunamite woman stands in the canon and reminds us of both the age-old struggle to suppress Black women and other women of color and the righteous resistance such women must put forth: dark am I, and lovely. Our blackness is not an apology. It is a declaration that we are made in God's image." -Rev. Tega Swann
