The Color of Compromise

    Jermar Tisby has a 12-part video series on the difficult history of race relations and ways forward. See below for the promotional information and a link to RightNow Media to see the series. (Check elsewhere in Grace Notes on how to get an account on RightNow.)


    From the promotional material:

    Tisby provides a unique survey of American Christianity's racial past, revealing the concrete and chilling ways people of faith have worked against racial justice. Understanding our racial history sets the stage for solutions, but until we understand the depth of the malady we won't fully embrace the aggressive treatment it requires. Given the centuries of Christian compromise with bigotry, believers today must be prepared to tear down old structures and build up new ones. This video study provides an in-depth diagnosis for a racially divided American church and suggests ways to foster a more equitable and inclusive environment among God's people.
