We are excited to continue the practice of intentional conversation we are developing with this podcast by sharing with you a very special episode. Our second installment is a conversation between Transformation Ministries Director of Operations Dan Weiss and New York Times-bestselling author Jemar Tisby.
Every day’s news headlines seem to bring reminders of the fact that racism remains a clear and present danger to our communities. Fighting the darkness of racism is something that Christians must consider in today’s world. This conversation gets at the ways all of us can join in the fight and work forw a more just society.
Jemar Tisby is a historian, author, speaker, and one of the leading voices at the intersection of race, religion, politics, and culture. He reached the New York Times bestseller list with his book The Color of Compromise and has recently published his second book, How to Fight Racism. Tisby is also the president of The Witness: A Black Christian Collective and hosts both the Pass the Mac podcast and the Footnotes podcast.
