One woman shares a story about her everyday encounters with racism and sexism and the double bind women of color experience. She also explores how we can see one another as God’s image bearers, regardless of race or sex.
She should never be silenced; she should be heard and believed. This will teach her that God hears her. She should never be judged for her upbringing or education. She should be loved and cared for as a child of God.
Yes, you—whoever you are, wherever you may be. You can be an ally by recognizing the gifted Black woman minister. Speak to her and acknowledge her. Call her by her title, especially when speaking to others about her.
Because egalitarians understand how women have been muted in the church, we can help support Black women and give them a voice in the church and civil rights movement. The church must create spaces for Black women to lead and be heard.
