Episode 9: “Healing Racism’s Wounds” – Frankly: Faith and Culture in Brooklyn

Canon John addresses the impact on systemic racism on communities of color, the Church and the nation with veteran civil rights activist, sociologist, and founding Executive Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing in Atlanta, Dr. Catherine Meeks. Dr. Meeks enthusiastically embraced her current role after retiring from 40 years of teaching, and the recent killings of young Black women and men at the hands of law enforcement and subsequent wave of protests have given new fervor to her lifelong pursuit of racial justice.
