SUMMARY: Even though the audio is poor at times, this is one of the best discussions on race we have heard. The participants, who have lived and are living through this seemingly ever changing situation, challenge the listener to educate one’s self, lament and then take action. When you are done make sure to check out part 2.
KEY QUOTE: “When we lament, that is an act of worship, we haven’t stepped into that. I think that’s the place we really need to step into if we want to move towards any justice. We have to own this truth of our history and we have to lament this truth of our history.”
