KTF Weekly Newsletter: White Nativity, Black Girlhood, Indigenous Economics
A very warm welcome to the subscribers joining us after the sale last week. We appreciate your support, and really couldn’t do any of the work we do at KTF without you all. Thank you so much! And without further ado, here are this week’s highlights to help us leave colonized faith for the Kingdom of God.
Since we’re approaching the new year, everyone should sign up for the Equal Justice Initiative’s free daily email to get each day’s entry in the “A History of Racial Injustice” calendar (you can also buy the physical 2022 calendar here). The calendar will give you a regular rhythm of stories of racial injustices which pervade American history up to this day. It may sound like an exhausting thing to have around, and there are days I don’t read it. But it’s a powerful, well researched tool for helping us confront the idolatry of America that we consistently face with truth. And I learn things from the calendar I’ve never heard elsewhere: like that American women couldn’t marry Asian men without losing their citizenship from 1907 until the 1960s, or that the population of Idaho was one-third Chinese until a successful ethnic cleansing campaign, or that many American companies refused to participate in the war effort during WWII because it would have meant integrating their workforce. The examples go on and on.
