Episode 36: #GriefAND White Supremacy featuring Gregory Thompson. Gregory is a pastor, scholar, writer, producer, and amateur cook whose work focuses on racial healing in America. He currently serves as Executive Director of Voices Underground, an initiative to build a national memorial to the Underground Railroad in Southeast Pennsylvania. Dr. Thompson is also a Research Fellow in African American Cultural Heritage at Lincoln University (HBCU), the Visiting Theologian for Mission at Grace Mosaic Church in Washington DC, and the co-author (with Duke Kwon) of Reparations: A Christian Call to Repentance and Repair (Brazos Press, April 2021). He received his PhD in the Theology, Ethics, and Culture program in the University of Virginia’s department of Religious Studies, where he wrote his dissertation on Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rather than taking people as gloriously made in the image of God, beloved of God, rescued by Christ there is now this fundamental characteristic (race) which is imprinted on all our our minds.

Dr. Gregory Thompson

In this episode, Dr. Thompson starts out by sharing the grief he experiences over seeing how people use politics to invoke race wars in our culture and how our political leaders are refusing to speak on some of the key issues facing our culture. In our conversation we discuss how it is important for the church to not be silent and to be willing to address the issues that are prevalent in our society. Dr. Thompson also discusses the topic of white supremacy, both defining what that term means and also providing insight into how it is impacting our culture today.
