Working against racism is part of what it means to call Jesus Lord and Savior.

Most of us don’t need to make speeches. We need to make friends. This is the core message of Black and White: racism can be disrupted by relationships. If you will risk forging friendships with those who do not look like you, it will change the way you see the world, and that could change the world.

The authors, Teesha Hadra, a young African American woman, and John Hambrick, a sexagenarian white man, bring a confident and redemptive tone to this hope because that is exactly what they’ve experienced.  Black and White leverages their story, surrounding it with other’s stories, practical advice, and exploration of the systems of racism to motivate you to consider your own role in change.
