If you're like many white Americans, you knew little (if anything) about the Tulsa Race Massacre before recent days and weeks. We can therefore speak and act in ways that communicate racist messages and deepen racist divisions without knowing we are doing so.

These leaders could speak for those they represented and help the church minister holistically with greater effectiveness. I am convinced that every church, ministry, and organization in America should follow their example. Here's how.

Though not all of these indigenous leaders and participants in the campaign were Christians, many were. The movement effectively drew in non-Christian intellectual leaders like Kang Youwei by using arguments grounded in the understandable Chinese desire for respect from other nations.
