Abstract

This article details the personal life experiences and reflections of two African American, Christian, social work educators who identify with multiple marginalized categories and identities. They describe the importance of their friendship and struggles with faith at the intersection of their life stories. Understanding the lived experiences of those living in multiple marginalized groups has implications for Christian social workers as it pertains to social support and coping strategies in the lives of those living in the margins.
