This week, Amera and Mike explore the importance of a faith that affirms blackness. They address harmful and healthy depictions, why it is vital to the development of self-identity, and strategies for ensuring we construct healthy environments. With so many anti-black messages pressing into our collective consciousness, this isn’t just a fight in faith spaces. It is an interconnected effort to devalue so our efforts to affirm must also push back on multiple fronts.
Why do black Christians worship white Jesus? Why practice a faith given to you by slave masters? Amera and Mike deal with common arguments raised and how applying a little critical thought allows for richer and historically accurate dialog. There’s a lot to address in this one. Take the journey with them. Be affirmed.
