Product Description

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.

Endorsements

Awareness creates discontent. A lack of awareness often results in complacency. When it comes to racism there's no room for complacency. Especially for Christ followers. In Black & White my friends Teesha Hadra and John Hambrick stir our awareness. My hope…their hope…is that having become aware we will become permanently and passionately discontent with racism in all of its insidious forms and expressions. - Andy Stanley, pastor and founder of North Point Community Church, author of Irresistable

Racial matters are always personal and always systemic. In this book, Hadra and Hambrick usher us through this tangle, ever mindful of the pivotal role of friendship. This is the route they have traveled together-the accessible but daunting road into the joy, pain, and hope of honest friendship. What first remakes their hearts, also resets their public lives. Read this book with a friend not like you, and let it do its powerful work! - Mark Labberton, President, Fuller Theological Seminary

Are you tired feeling awkward, unequipped, defensive or afraid whenever social media chatter fires up about football and national anthem, police shootings or Black History Month? Teesha Hadra and John Hambrick synergize their backgrounds and perspectives to create a gospel-centered dialogue on race that will make you sweat at first. But, if you believe that the gospel can heal and transform, then grab this book and read it with a group of friends or your small group, God will use your courageous conversations to build bridges for the sake of gospel and heal what racism and segregation have devastated for 400 years. As an African-American woman who spent 14 years as a leader at a predominantly white megachurch, I’m fist-pumping Teesha and John's courageous decision to blast the light of Christ on a difficult topic that far too many American churches (praise God, not mine!) are content to ignore.- Barb Roose, speaker and author of Winning the Worry Battle

Very few people want to talk about the pervasiveness of modern racism, but Teesha Hadra and John Hambrick make a compelling case for why we need to tackle the issue head-on, and they serve as a beautiful example of how to approach it. Their story is a refreshing reminder that when we start with relationships rooted in love and respect for one another, we can work through even the most uncomfortable and complex of challenges. - Bob Creson, President/CEO,Wycliffe Bible Translators USA
