The stories of girls of color are often overlooked, unseen, and ignored rather than valued and heard. In her book “Parable of the Brown Girl,” minister and youth advocate Khristi Lauren Adams introduces readers to the resilience, struggle, and hope held within these stories. Instead of relegating these young women of color to the margins, Adams brings their stories front and center where they belong. By sharing encounters she’s had with girls of color that revealed profound cultural and theological truths, Adams magnifies the struggles, dreams, wisdom, and dignity of these voices. “Parable of the Brown Girl” is a powerful example of how God uses the narratives we most often ignore to teach us the most important lessons in life. Adams discussed her book and the work her soul must have with Katie Geneva Cannon Center for Womanist Leadership Director Melanie Jones.
