This chapter calls into question the efficacy of multiracial church movements for racial justice. Often multiracial churches overemphasize interracial relations at the expense of critiquing structural inequalities. This chapter concludes that until multiracial churches combine their desire for racial diversity on Sunday morning with a desire for racial justice throughout society, these congregations will ultimately produce little, if any, societal change for the people of color who attend them.
