Jemar Tisby is a historian, writer, and speaker. His first book is The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism (Zondervan, 2019).
The episode was recorded just after the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. In that light, Jemar speaks about the history of racism in the American church, and of what it will take to move from complicity to courage for racial justice.
Jemar is President of The Witness: A Black Christian Collective, and he is a cohost (with Tyler Burns) of the "Pass the Mic" podcast.
Show note: Since the interview was recorded on May 28, 2020 (after the slaying of George Floyd), we were not able to talk about the important events that have taken place between that time and the release of the episode.
