Thanks Englewood for highlighting the important need to read books by non-white scholars. Thanks for including my book!
Below is an excerpt from“Our God is Too White? Diversifying our Theology”.
A friend of mine recently posted this NY Times article about the lack of diversity in philosophy on his Facebook wall, and speculated that its argument might also apply to theology.

As a means to start diversifying our theological reading, here are 10 important books by non-white theologians. These books will undoubtedly open the gates to a host of works by other authors.
The Christian Imagination: Theology and the Origins of Race
