This NEEDED to be written so thank you per usual! This has been a subject matter that I’ve wanted to explore biblically in recent weeks in light of what happened in the news.

Again, in the book Eve by Wm Paul Young, Genesis’s Eve is depicted as a black woman. This not only affirms the divinity of femininity but of blackness as well. As the story in the garden gives the origin story of the oppression of woman, I believe it also gives the origin story of the oppression of Blackness. It sticks with the pattern that where there is life, there is strong attack to stifle it.

Furthermore, it lines up with scientific evidence of our mitochondrial DNA being traced back to Africa. Thus, the mother of all living is a black woman.
