Brown Faces, White Spaces

Confronting Systemic Racism to Bring Healing and Restoration

Latasha Morrison

About Brown Faces, White Spaces

The New York Times bestselling author of Be the Bridge calls people of faith to confront the historical inequities that still exist in so many American institutions—from our legal system and media to our schools and churches—and offers a path toward a future that better serves everyone.

Latasha Morrison, acclaimed racial justice advocate and author of the Christian Book Award® winner Be the Bridge, invites us to wrestle honestly with the disparities that negatively impact Brown and Black people. Weaving historical events with contemporary realities to reveal the generational effects of racism and inequality throughout American culture, Morrison illuminates a path toward lasting change, highlighting how each individual—and the church collectively—can play a role in building a future where all can thrive.

Drawing on rich sociological insights as well as experiences of family, friends, and her own life, Morrison documents what it takes to become a voice of liberation in all aspects of our daily lives, including:

  • The economy: Whether you’re a Fortune 500 executive, a manager of a moderate-size division, a small business owner, or a barista at a coffee shop, it’s up to you to create an equitable workplace or storefront.
  • Property ownership: Maybe you’re not a lender or a legislator. But you can dedicate your most precious resource—your time—to bringing about justice.
  • Entertainment: Support artists of color in music, literature, art, and film who are sharing amazing, complex, and intensely human stories.
  • The church: Let’s talk about racism and how Jesus came to liberate us from it. Let’s also talk about how to apply that Gospel to create a more equitable church and world.

Challenging yet hopeful, featuring Latasha Morrison’s rich storytelling as well as questions for personal reflection and group discussion, Brown Faces, White Spaces shows the steps we can all take to create a better tomorrow.

Includes questions for personal reflection and group discussion.
