Our goal is simple—educate white people on black history.
#BHforWP is a multiethnic collective dedicated to loving black and brown people by educating, resourcing, and challenging white people to actively participate in racial justice. The highest calling of humanity is to love. Whether you know it or not, the racial disparities in our country hurt us. They train us to protect our advantages rather than love others, and that mentality reduces us.

New episodes will be released on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month.

    East Dallas: Hamilton Park

    East Dallas: Hamilton Park

    We’re joined by Adam Griffin who’s a pastor at Eastside Community Church in East Dallas and has an educational background studying the historical context of racial division Dallas.
    To continue our East Dallas series, we drove around with Adam to go and see Hamilton Park, one of Dallas’ planned Black communities. Adam shares some history about the neighborhood and we dive into its origin story. While we were driving, we saw a sign that said “93rd birthday” so we had to stop and ask some questions and you’ll hear from some current residents and the enlightening conversation we had with them.

Too religious for me

It’s important subject matter and the first episode started off promising but they veered into a very heavy evangelical Christian point of view that wasn’t for me. It’s a good podcast but I’m not it’s audience and if you’re not an evangelical, it might not be for you either.

Thank you

I love this podcast thank you so much for doing this! I was looking to learn more about BLM and your podcast came up in my search so I downloaded the episodes not knowing it was a Christian that made it! We need more of us to sand up for equality in this country we need to put our prayers in action! Thank you again for making such a great podcast!

Godgodgod

The subject matter is super important. I want to learn more about black history to be a better ally but I CANNOT handle the preaching and bible verses and all the testifying.
I’m really disappointed.
This should be listed in the religious podcast category.
