SUMMARY: Author Jemar Tisby traces the intertwining of race, the church and politics from the 1400’s into the 21st century in his 12-part study series with episodes ranging from 5 to 26 minutes. Tisby clearly shows how racism has been woven into the fabric of American life with the church’s explicit and implicit support.

This would be great to watch and discuss in a small group church setting, in a classroom or with family and friends. Or use the watch party button to watch with friends virtually.

The introduction episode addresses all of the popular rebuttals to racism. Episodes 2-10 touch on the history of racism and episode 11 details a framework on how to get involved. Total runtime is 253 minutes – an average 21 minutes per episode.

This is heavy content and requires a large time commitment, but if you want to dig deeper, this is a fantastic resource. Warning there are graphic depictions of lynchings.

KEY QUOTE: “The American church has compromised with racism. Countless Christians have ignored, obscured or misunderstood this history. The excuses are gone – this information cannot be hidden. Now that racism has been exposed – what are you going to do about it?
