Celebrating Black History Month: A Resource List

As a church, we want to celebrate Black History Month, especially our African and African American brothers and sisters’ contributions to the spread of the Gospel and the church. We’ve taken some time to compile for you resources and works written by African and African Americans. Take some time to read through some of these and learn more about our incredibly diverse church history!
