Cloud of Witnesses: Not all Christian bloggers are white

Here’s the third list that I’ve started compiling. I’ve already posted a couple versions of The Bonfire (a list of Christian women bloggers) and QUILTblogs (a list of Christian LGBT bloggers), and this list collects Christian bloggers who don’t happen to be white.

This list so far is embarrassingly short. That’s evidence, I take it, that my own blog-reading habits have been even more culturally circumscribed than I had realized.

So I’m asking for help here, because apparently I need it. What I’ve got here isn’t so much a list as the tip of an iceberg, and I hope you’ll be able to help me discover the many, many terrific voices I haven’t yet included here.

  • You forgot Crystal S. Lewis:

  • Ursula L

    Fred, are you cross-referencing your lists?  Because I expect that a fair number of bloggers will fit on one or more list.  And the intersections of the various lists should be interesting.  

  • I’m pretty new to this, but I’m an Asian American Christian and I have a blog:

    Also, my pals at AAWOL sisters have been at it for a while:

  •  Although technically Crystal is a Unitarian Universalist.

  • The_L1985

    A Christian UU, or some other kind? Because a lot of UUs are also Christian.

  •  Yeah, she does write from a mostly Christian perspective, so I would say a Christian UU. Crystal could probably tell you more than I can.

    Still a great blogger, no matter what label you put on her.

  • – Gabbing with Grace
    – Deidra Riggs
    – Enuma Okoro

  • Thanks for adding me to the list. I am in fact black, contrary to some opinions. :)  I do have an Italian wife, does that eliminate me in some way?!  

    Seriously, I’ll look through the list and check out some of my other other-caucasian Christians.

  • Thank you for including me on your Colourful list, and on your woman blogger list, Fred. Ah, some advantages to being a “minority” then!! 
    Blessings, Anita
