I used this for the "an educational read" part of my 2021 reading challenge. I really enjoyed it, it was very well written and enlightening.

I went into this totally blind with no context what it was about. It kind of went all over the place, but I think she’s a good writer. I’m not Christian and never have been, so the Christian themes in the latter half went over my head.

Vulnerable and honest, Brown's memoir offers an intimate look at what it's like to be a Black woman in institutions and organizations that default to people who are white while dismissing and devaluing those who are not.

Many times in the reading I sensed that I was being told what my friends from school or colleagues in Christian organizations felt—things that I missed or had no words for as they happened. Patterns and systems that I may have found problematic, but that I didn't question (for long) or challenge.

Brown's story prompted me to continue to ask myself: How did and how do I contribute to the discomfort, diminishment, or erasure of another person because their way of being is unfamiliar, different, or "other"?

A generous teacher and thoughtful writer.

Powerful, honest, and full of love. This might be a good introduction to anti-racism for the conservative Christian in your life.... Austin is also Christian and weaves that into her essays as part of her experience. I loved everything about this.
