Episodes 24: #GriefAND Black History featuring Dr. Jemar Tisby, author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the Church’s Complicity in Racism, and How to Fight Racism. His latest book is How to Fight Racism: Young Reader’s Edition. Jemar has been a co-host of the “Pass the Mic” podcast since its inception seven years ago. His writing has been featured in the Washington Post, The Atlantic, and the New York Times among others. He is a frequent commentator on outlets such as NPR and CNN’s New Day program. He speaks nationwide on the topics of racial justice, U.S. history and Christianity. Jemar earned his PhD in history and he continues to study race, religion, and social movements in the 20th century.

We need to revisit how we understand and what we understand about the image of God. We have to really go back to the foundations of our shared humanity. If we start with our shared humanity, where God loves all people so much that He would send His son. There must be something about this crown of creation God calls humanity. And if God so feels that way, than how ought we to treat one another? And that is what has gotten lost in American Christianity.

Dr. Jemar Tisby

In this episode we discuss different elements of black history including racial inequality, justice, violence and the path to reconciliation. In our conversation we examine how our history has been shaped by culture, people and religion. Dr. Tisby also provides his insights into historical contexts and stories to help provide a more robust understanding of black history.
