These names may not be familiar, but each one of these women was a shining beacon of devotion in a world that did not value their lives. They worked to change laws, built schools, spoke to thousands, shared the Gospel around the world. And while history books may have forgotten them, their stories can teach us so much about what it means to be modern women of faith.
Through the research and reflections of author Jasmine Holmes, you will be inspired by what each of these exceptional women can teach us about the intersections of faith and education, birth, privilege, opportunity, and so much more. Carved in Ebony will take you past the predominantly white, male contributions that seemingly dominate history books and church history to discover how Black women have been some of the main figures in defining the landscape of American history and faith.
Join Jasmine on this journey of illuminating these women--God's image-bearers, carved in ebony.
My thoughts: I found this book to be full of hidden gems! I loved learning about Black women who helped shape history and change the world around them for the better. I really appreciated Jasmine sharing stories from her own life and found it interesting how similar some a lot of our upraising was. I look forward to reading more of her books!
I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.
