MOVIE: I am Not Your Negro

Actor Samuel L. Jackson reads from author James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript Remember This House over video clips and pictures from the sixties. Baldwin's criticism of white America hits right to the core - especially for the white church. Presented in the vein of a Ken Burns documentary. Though most of the footage is over 50 years old, it could have come out of today's headlines. If you are watching on Amazon Prime, pause the movie and use the x-ray feature to learn about the lesser known historical figures. Note that there are graphic images.

SHOW: Uncomfortable conversations with a black man

A continuing series with Fox Sports analyst Emmanuel Acho who answers hard to ask questions people, specifically white people, have about growing up black in America, systemic racism and much more. Each week he brings on a new guest. If you have a question that you are afraid of or uncomfortable asking - then check out his episodes for the answer. Engaging and highly recommended.

BOOK: Human (Kind)

Mars Hill Bible pastor Aslee Eiland (Grandville, MI) recalls stories from her childhood, her college years and some of her adult years as she unpacks what it means to extend kindness to other people in all situations - most of the time that just means listening - and that simple act is oftentimes messy.
