He grew up just north of Chicago and attended the University of Notre Dame.

He received his MDiv from Reformed Theological Seminary and is presently working toward his PhD in History at the University of Mississippi studying race, religion, and social movements in the twentieth century.
He published his first book, "The Color of Compromise", in January of 2019. It is a historical survey of the American church’s complicity with racism with practical suggestions for moving forward.
His new book, "How to Fight Racism" was released in January 2021. "How to Fight Racism" is a handbook for pursuing racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple framework--the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice--that helps readers consistently interrogate their own actions and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This book is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.
