Austin Channing BrownWe couldn’t be prouder of Marygrove grad Austin Channing Brown, who along with Shonda Rhimes and Solange Knowles, was named one of the “16 Black Women Who Owned 2014.” From the article:

There’s racism, there’s the church, and then there’s racism in the church. In 2014, Austin Channing Brown challenged the American evangelical community with essays and blogs that explored widely the issue of racism within the church as well as the lack of engagement as a collective in issues of systemic racism such as the non-indictments of police officers in the murders of unarmed Black men and boys. Often called a racial reconciler, her work gained a wide and varied audience in 2014 and she continues to tear down the walls within this still-very segregated institution.
