I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness
In a time when nearly all institutions (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claim to value “diversity” in their mission statements, this book by Austin Channing Brown is a powerful account of how and why our actions so often fall short of our words.
From Austin Channing Brown's website - "Austin writes in breathtaking detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice, in stories that bear witness to the complexity of America's social fabric--from Black Cleveland neighborhoods to private schools in the middle-class suburbs, from prison walls to the boardrooms at majority-white organizations. For readers who have engaged with America's legacy on race through the writing of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Michael Eric Dyson, I'M STILL HERE is an illuminating look at how white, middle-class, Evangelicalism has participated in an era of rising racial hostility, inviting the reader to confront apathy, recognize God's ongoing work in the world, and discover how blackness--if we let it--can save us all."
