This book is my story about growing up in a Black girl’s body. It’s about surviving in a world not made for me.


Austin Channing Brown’s first encounter with a racialized America came at age seven, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. Growing up in majority-white schools and churches, Austin writes, ‘I had to learn what it means to love Blackness,’ a journey that led to a lifetime spent navigating America’s racial divide as a writer, speaker and expert helping organisations practice genuine inclusion.


In a time when nearly every institution (schools, churches, universities, businesses) claims to value diversity in its mission statement, Austin writes in breathtaking detail about her journey to self-worth and the pitfalls that kill our attempts at racial justice. Her stories bear witness to the complexity of America’s social fabric and invite the reader to confront apathy, recognise God’s ongoing work in the world and discover how Blackness-if we let it-can save us all.

Austin Channing Brown is a speaker, writer and media producer providing inspired leadership on racial justice in America. She is the author of I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness and the executive producer of the web series The Next Question.Jun 10, 2020.
