Are Racial & Gender Equality a Possibility?

The veracity and efficacy of the Gospel are not measured by how many people did not receive it, but by the transformation in those who do believe and receive it. In the same way, we must look for the veracity and efficacy of gender and racial equality not by measuring those who neither accept nor practice it, but instead in those who believe, accept and practice it. -Rev. Oghene'tega Swann

Black Panther & The Effect of Cultural Appropriation on Youth of Color

"To my son, it was the first time he saw black people not as thugs, drug dealers, gang members, or sex workers. He saw people that looked like him that did amazing things. He didn't see the hood. He saw a nation. He saw a hero. He saw that we aren't just what the media wants us to be." -Shevone Torres

Becoming the Mother of Black Children

"As I began to learn more about racism and the systems of oppression, it was like I was discovering a whole other world that I had previously not known existed. I had been able to live in my white bubble, unaware of the experiences of POC all around me." -Jenn Lynn

My Bicultural, Egalitarian Wedding

"We also have a relationship of equality and mutuality, in which neither of us is defined in our roles or abilities by our genders. It was important to us—and to me especially, as a woman and as someone who thinks deeply about gender equality in both my professional and my personal life—that our wedding reflect our egalitarianism." -Haley Gabrielle

At-Risk Youth or At-Risk Communities?

"Our well-meaning North American psychological bent towards the communities of color tends to address the effects of risks our communities face without ever really addressing the injustices that creates those effects." -Rev. Oghene'tega Swann

When Our Skin Is Our Sin

"As the black community grapples with the effects of incarceration on generations of black men, we now have to grapple with the incarceration of black women and the fact that colorism and the disdain for blackness is a contributing factor to who enters prison and how long they stay there." -Onlielove Alston

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

Mutuality is Being “Seen”

"Mutuality is about being 'seen' and 'affirmed' as inherently worthy and equally equipped and imbued by God with knowledge, integrity, honor, skills, worthiness, etc., and being 'brought into' the space where one exists and functions with others in that paradigm of equality." -Rev. Oghene'tega Swann
