Unmasking Racism is an experientially based, multi-generational, interdisciplinary, contextually diverse, and inclusive take on racism from a socio-historical, ecclesial, and theological perspective.


This work offers an experientially based, multi-generational, interdisciplinary, contextually diverse, and inclusive take on racism from a socio-historical, ecclesial, and theological perspective. The constructive arm of the project explores what it would mean to consider "love" as a strategic commitment to exposing systemic racism at every level of Christian faith and practice: the church, the community, and the academy. Our text offers action items within each chapter to help readers (whether scholars, clergy, or laypersons) to visualize next steps within their respective contexts.

For the writers, each chapter is foregrounded in reflections from their own individual and collective experiences wrestling with the sin of racism within various ministerial contexts. The aim of this book is to invite readers to take a step with the writers, a step toward adopting a set of actions or series of processes unmasking racism. This book invites its readers to explore what it would mean for persons of faith to consider love as a commitment to justice, a commitment to understand the experiences of those dis-empowered by systemic racism and how we can fulfill this commitment by exposing racism at every level of Christian faith and practice in society.
