Truth's Table: Black Women's Musings on Life, Love, and Liberation; Ekemini Uwan, Christina Edmondson, Michelle Higgins
- Unit Price
FINALIST FOR THE NAACP IMAGE AWARD - A collection of essays and stories documenting the lived theology and spirituality we need to hear in order to lean into a more freeing, loving, and liberating faith--from the hosts of the beloved Truth's Table podcast
"The liberating work of Truth's Table creates breathing room to finally have those conversations we've been needing to have."--Morgan Harper Nichols, artist and poet
Once upon a time, an activist, a theologian, and a psychologist walked into a group chat. Everything was laid out on the table: Dating. Politics. The Black church. Pop culture. Soon, other Black women began pulling up chairs to gather round. And so, the Truth's Table podcast was born.
In their literary debut, co-hosts Christina Edmondson, Michelle Higgins, and Ekemini Uwan offer stories by Black women and for Black women examining theology, politics, race, culture, and gender matters through a Christian lens. For anyone seeking to explore the spiritual dimensions of hot-button issues within the church, or anyone thirsty to deepen their faith, Truth's Table provides exactly the survival guide we need, including:
- Michelle Higgins's unforgettable treatise revealing the way "racial reconciliation" is a spiritually bankrupt, empty promise that can often drain us of the ability to do real justice work
- Ekemini Uwan's exploration of Blackness as the image of God in the past, present, and future
- Christina Edmondson's reimagination of what a more just and liberating form of church discipline might look like--one that acknowledges and speaks to the trauma in the room
These essays deliver a compelling theological re-education and pair the spiritual formation and political education necessary for Black women of faith.
