How can we reevaluate our narratives with a racially-consicous lens? In my eye-opening conversation with bestselling author and historian Jemar Tisby, we discuss how to reevaluate our personal and historical narratives through a racially-conscious lens, the decoupling of Christianity from Americanism, and how people of faith can uplift marginalized groups and fight systemic racism. Jemar Tisby is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Color of Compromise, president and co-founder of The Witness, Inc., and co-host of the podcast, Pass The Mic. Jemar and his family live in Mississippi, and his new book, How to Fight Racism was published this month. You can learn more about The Witness Inc. and make a donation here.
