The last two Sundays I have preached a sermon series called The Gospel & Race. The main applications were that we should care about racial harmony as a gospel issue and that we should seek to increase our racial intelligence so that we can look to the interests of others (Philippians 2:4). I want to recommend some resources for further study. Remember that we also need real people in our lives that are different than us for real discussion. These resources are not replacements for people.
There are many other good and trustworthy resources that can help you increase your racial intelligence and understand how the gospel impacts our pursuit of racial harmony and diversity. These are simply some that may be a good place to start. I am not saying that I agree with every word of every resource I have listed here, but I am saying they provide content that is helpful to think through and consider. I hope and pray that time you invest in these resources and others will benefit you, your friendships, and our church.
