Black History Month Resources

This black history month, we at SOS want to provide a list of resources for those that want to know more. In this list you will find podcasts, articles, books and more on topics such as racial reconciliation, being black in America, and theology from black theologians. Taking in some of these resources can be a great way to learn from those who may have different perspectives or experiences than our own.
