Spring 2015, "Conversations About Race"
Over the past several years, conversations about race have often dominated the headlines, often in not very helpful ways. What is abundantly clear – whether the subject is the first black U.S. president, the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the incidents of deadly policing, or the recent killings of nine African Americans in a Charleston church – is that racism still exists in the United States. We are not a post-racial society, and we are still often divided by race. While there are many insightful, profound, honest, wise, and challenging perspectives on race available elsewhere, in this edition of Shalom! we feature a few of our own Brethren in Christ brothers and sisters reflecting on their experience and conversations about race.
