Did you know that less than 1% of international missionaries are African American? I didn’t until I became one. I have quite a story to tell and plenty left to learn. This is my progress through the grime on the way to glory. And missions is just one of the ways I intend to reclaim it.
My story is not about condemning white people, but about rejecting the assumption, sometimes spoken, sometimes not, that white is right, closer to God, holy, chosen, the epitome of being. My story is about choosing to love my black femaleness, even when it shocks folks who expected someone quite different. It’s about standing before rooms full of Christians and challenging them to see blackness without the baggage of racial bias.”Austin Channing Brown
