During Black History Month, we are proud to be celebrating our new partnership with The Well – a powerful initiative working with Black Christians and Black Majority Churches to help tackle extreme poverty and injustice. Here, two of our friends from The Well Team reflect on what they are Proud To Be.
I am Proud To Be the granddaughter of first-generation immigrants.
This year’s Black History Month is about celebration, and it's the first time in my thirty-two years that I have seen it as a celebration. In previous years, I have always felt the trauma of black plight and struggle, but this year is different.
In March 2021, I rediscovered my love affair with nostalgia, and I found myself looking for old photos of my childhood and my parents' life before I was born. The more attention I poured into exploring the legacy of my family, the more I realised how steep the richness of grace and anointing there had to have been on the journey they made by coming to Britain and setting up a church.
