30 Black Christians You Should Know: Complete Edition

30 Black Christians You Should Know: All 30!

This unique series – 30 Black Christians You Should Know – was sponsored and promoted by URBAN THEOLOGIAN RADIO. Pastor Vocab (John-Mark) of Roosevelt Community Church did the research and created the text for each digital card. Akande Davis of Advent Analog Media provided the graphic design. Megan Rose released the images on social media. You can download and use them for teaching purposes. Do not sell, they are meant to be free. Give Urban Theologian Radio  or Roosevelt Community Church a shout out if you use them.
