Editor’s Note: We sat down with Natasha Sistrunk Robinson, editor of the new book Voices of Lament, and Missio Alliance national director, Lisa Rodriguez-Watson, a contributor to the book, to gain understanding on the importance for both truth-telling and lament. Enjoy their dialogue.
In this article, Lisa and Natasha answer questions about Voices of Lament, women of color and how we can learn from them, how women of color impact our community, overcoming the opinions of your oppressors, generational pain, systemic injustice and personal takeaways from working on the Voices of Lament project. This powerful article provides rich insights into the lives of women of color across multiple generations and how we as a culture can create space to listen to their pain and right the injustices that have taken place.
The church misses out when our theology is centered on how well we can debate. Women of color remind us of the reality that our theology ultimately includes what we do-how well we love and treat our neighborsNatasha Sistrunk Robinson
