I'm Still Here review å 103 Austin Channing Brown ☆ 3 summary Veland neighborhoods to private schools in the middle class suburbs from prison walls to the boardrooms at majority white organizationsFor readers who have engaged with America's legacy on race through the writing of Ta Nehisi Coates and Michael Eric Dyson I'm Still Here is an illuminating look at how white middle class Evangelicalism has participated in an era of rising racial hostility inviting the reader to confront apathy recognize God's ongoing work in the world and discover how blackness if we let it can save us all. Even when the world doesn t believe that Black bodies are capable of love Even when it doesn t believe that I survive on intimacy that I need other beings for love Even when I would prefer to be immune I am human I demand intimacy I demand tomorrow I demand loveI was hesitant to read I m Still Here after seeing in several reviews that the author talks a lot about her religion I thought it would be prevalent throughout the book taking away from its messageI decided to read it anyway just ignoring the religion because I m trying to learn as much as I can about race racism and anti racismHow glad I am that I did Austin Channing Brown shares her experience of growing up Black in America An America where racism has always been strong and white supremacy is built into the very fabric of our nationI found Ms Brown s writing to be powerful and insightful and though she does write some about her faith and religion it was not as ubiuitous as I d thought If you re doing the work of unlearning racism and learning about the Black experience in America this is definitely a book to add to your listAs with all books I ve read on race I m Still Here further opened my eyes to how racism manifests through me and made me aware of the things I say that are hurtful to others I am grateful to Austin Channing Brown for sharing her experience and her insight I leave you with a few uotes from the bookI learned pretty early in life that while Jesus may be cool with racial diversity America is notWhite supremacy is a tradition that must be named and a religion that must be renounced When this work has not been done those who live in whiteness become oppressive whether intentional or notWhen you believe niceness disproves the presence of racism it s easy to start believing bigotry is rare and that the label racist should be applied only to mean spirited intentional acts of discriminationOur only chance at dismantling racial injustice is being curious about its origins than we are worried about our comfortI am not impressed with America s progress I am not impressed that slavery was abolished or that Jim Crow ended I feel no need to pat America on its back for these achievements This is how it always should have been Many call it progress but I do not consider it praiseworthy that only within the last generation did America reach the baseline for human decency
