Faithfully Magazine’s ‘Faith Heroes’ Line Celebrates Christians of Color in US History

The Bible speaks of heroes of the faith, such as Abraham, Moses, and Rahab (Hebrews 11). These are ordinary people whose faith in God gave them courage to step into the unknown, fight for freedom, and seek a better way of life.

U.S. history has its own faith heroes whose faith in God helped them persevere in their pursuits for better things. As a result, they sought improvement not only for themselves, but for their communities and country.

We highlight some of these figures in our “Remember” section, including Mary McLeod Bethune, Harriet Tubman, Richard Twiss, and others. This section exists because we believe their contributions should be celebrated with pride and as a source of encouragement.

Faithfully Magazine’s “Faith Heroes” line celebrates these Christian leaders with educational and inspirational products. Among the items we’re producing are bookmarks, mugs, t-shirts, and eventually a book of short biographies on these figures.

The first items we have released are Faith Hero bookmarks, including Mary McLeod Bethune, Nannie Helen Burroughs, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, and Fannie Lou Hamer. These attractive bookmarks feature a key quote from each hero on the front and their brief biography on the back. The glossy bookmarks are practical—educational and inspirational.

Help Keep Christian Media Diverse

Faithfully Magazine began in 2016/2017 with the mission to keep Christian media diverse by centering our content on Christian communities of color for an ethnically-inclusive audience. In that time, we’ve made an impact on Christian media and achieved meaningful milestones — such as creating a volunteer Associate Editor role, launching an Editorial Fellowship, and proudly paying our contributing writers. But we need your support to keep going. In addition to partnering with advertisers, nurturing a subscription/membership, and exploring paid live events, we rely on the generosity of readers who see value in our work and in our mission. We invite you to join us, and keep walking with us, in our mission. Every amount, big or small, empowers us to stay the course.
