Ekemini Uwan is a public theologian who received her Master of Divinity degree in 2016 from Westminster Theological Seminary (WTS) in Philadelphia, PA. She is the co-host of Truth's Table podcast alongside Michelle Higgins and Dr. Christina Edmondson. During her time at WTS, Ekemini won the 2015 Greene Prize in Apologetics Award. In 2018, Christianity Today named her among "10 New or Lesser-Known Female Theologians Worth Knowing.”

Her writings have been published in the Huffington Post Black Voices, Christianity Today, and The Witness: A Black Christian Collective to name a few. Her insights have been quoted by CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The New Yorker among other publications.

As one who is passionate about sound theology, Ekemini has a fierce commitment to biblical orthodoxy and its implications for issues pertaining to racial injustice, anti-black racism, and white supremacy.


Ekemini believes that theology can and does speak to the culture, social, and political issues of our present day. As a result, she often speaks, opines, and writes about the aforementioned for various online publications. Ekemini's voice has been sampled on Lecrae's album, All Things Work Together and Sho Baraka's The Narrative.

In her spare time, she enjoys discipling women, spending quality time with loved ones and working out. As a self-proclaimed part-time fashionista, she has a penchant for thrift shopping.
