“With this exquisitely composed [essay collection], Gopo sets herself apart as one of the most promising and talented writers of faith of our time. All the Colors We Will See is evocative, compelling, surprising, and brave. Gopo has a special talent for weaving her story into the narratives of Scripture and for guiding the reader through some of the difficult realities of race, immigration, and identity in America with wisdom and grace. Every page, every sentence, is a gift!” —Rachel Held Evans (Searching for Sunday)

She will be in conversation with Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Durham writer, speaker, and activist. Their topic is “In Conversation: On Race & Faith in the New South.” The discussion will be moderated by Mawethu Ncaca, and introduced by David Potorti.
