Color of Compromise spelled out the whole truth, taught me some history I did not know, and reminded me to be very careful with how I interpret our sacred scriptures. Too often church leaders have cherry-picked the Bible in order to support their own hatred and judgement. I NEVER want to do that! I want to be convicted by God's Word and treat it faithfully, not bend it to my will.
Please, please, please consider reading this book! And let me know your thoughts - I'm happy to discuss! Here is what Amazon has to say about The Color of Compromise:
"An acclaimed, timely narrative of how people of faith have historically--up to the present day--worked against racial justice. And a call for urgent action by all Christians today in response.
The Color of Compromise is both enlightening and compelling, telling a history we either ignore or just don't know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. You will be guided in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church.

I found Tisby's final chapter and suggested action items extremely helpful! Again, I will 10/10 recommend this book!
