    Mental Health and Racial Trauma

    Mental Health and Racial Trauma

    Not only is racism legally and morally wrong, it also takes a toll on the mental health of those who endure its effects on a daily basis. African Americans are particularly vulnerable as we are more likely to face police violence, unemployment, disparities in education and healthcare, and broken relationships. Psychologist Pamela LaVeist Bell provides insight on race-based traumatic stress, and what we all can do to maintain balance and protect our mental health.

    Is Christianity the White Man's Religion?

    Is Christianity the White Man's Religion?

    The novel coronavirus pandemic, massive unemployment and racial unrest with the murder of George Floyd has caused some Christians to question their faith and ask the question, "Where is God in all of this?" This is not a new question, and actually follows an emerging trend in the African American community that perhaps Christianity is not the "right" religion for Black people, that the Bible speaks more to slavery and subservience than liberation and empowerment. We talk with theologian, ordained minister and President and Dean of Jakes Divinity School, Dr. Antipas Harris, author of "Is Christianity the White Man's Religion? How the Bible is Good News for People of Color". Dr. Harris talks candidly about the perception that Christianity is detached from matters of justice, identity, and culture. He also looks at the ways in which American evangelicalism may have incubated the race problem.

    On Being A Black Man In America

    On Being A Black Man In America

    The murder of George Floyd, an African American man, in broad daylight at the hands of a white police officer while other officers stood by, is the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back" - the result - peaceful protests, violent protests, anguish, pain, disgust, and a forced reckoning with race and racism in America. What is it about African Americans, and Black men in particular, that causes comments like, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts"? What does it say about a society where a person who is supposed to protect instead takes a life over $20? What makes a white woman think it is OK to call the police in hysteria because a Black man asked her to leash her dog? Join an open, honest, raw conversation with four accomplished, professional African American men about what it is like to be a Black man in America. Our guests include Dr. Eric Claville, Dr. Wil LaVeist, Roger Chesley and Joe Dillard.
