    "Juneteenth" with Dr. Carey Latimore

    "Juneteenth" with Dr. Carey Latimore

    In 2021, Juneteenth—also known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day—became the United States federal holiday, but many are still unaware of its origins and significance in American history. On this special episode of VOICES’s Where Ya From? podcast, author and associate professor Dr. Carey Latimore shares with us the legacy of Juneteenth and the radical faith it still inspires today.

    Guest Bio:
    Carey H. Latimore IV serves as associate professor of history, co-director of the African American studies program at Trinity University, and associate pastor of a local church. Frequently asked to serve as a commentator and consultant on current topics such as race, land ownership, political identity, and religion for local and state media and organizations, he has also authored Unshakeable Faith: African American Stories of Redemption, Hope, and Community and The Role of Southern Free Blacks During the Civil War and appears in Our Daily Bread Media’s documentary film Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom. Dr. Latimore and his wife reside in San Antonio, Texas.

    Notes & Quotes:

    “I think Black people in their faith were kind of presenting a mirror and a window into the essence of the gospels that many people have forgotten or left behind.”

    “On Juneteenth, people start talking about what we can be, what we can do. What we have done. It’s an inspiring moment because we think of the possibilities.”

    “When one group becomes free, we all become freer.”

    “When those people came out of slavery at Juneteenth, we all came a little bit out of slavery. We all lost one link on that chain on our way towards a greater freedom, so that’s why we celebrate.”

    "Faithful Anti-Racism" with Dr. Christina Edmondson and Chad Brennan

    "Faithful Anti-Racism" with Dr. Christina Edmondson and Chad Brennan

    These days, the world—and the Church—are heavily divided on how to approach issues surrounding race. That’s why writer and higher education instructor Dr. Christina Edmondson and Race, Religion, and Justice Project director Chad Brennan have brought biblical insight into the conversation with their book Faithful Antiracism. On this episode of the VOICES’s Where Ya From? podcast, Christina and Chad join host Rasool Berry to share their research and insights into racial reconciliation.

    Guest Bios:
    Dr. Christina Edmondson is a writer, educator, and mediator, whose writing has been referenced and featured in a variety of outlets, such as Essence.com. In addition to co-hosting the Truth’s Table podcast, she currently serves as Calvin University’s Dean for Intercultural Student Development.

    Chad Brennan earned his master of arts/theological studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and currently serves as the director of the Race, Religion, and Justice Project. Formerly, he mentored and led students from over 30 campuses as part of the college ministry, Cru.

    Notes & Quotes:

    Christina: “When I talk to believers who are part of persecuted groups, they’re desperate to find God in this story of oppression.”

    Chad: “As Christians, we are not going to effectively change our society if we can’t effectively change ourselves and our own communities.”

    Christina: “There’s not a hierarchy of who is made more in the image of God versus others.”

    “Don’t Try to Figure Me Out” with Mali Music

    “Don’t Try to Figure Me Out” with Mali Music

    People around us may think they know what’s best for our future, but in the end, it’s God’s plan that matters most. This is a truth Grammy-nominated and recording artist Mali Music learned at a young age, when he decided, against his family and community’s wishes, to pursue his passion for creating music. On this episode of the VOICES’s Where Ya From? podcast, the singer-songwriter details his childhood in the church, his boyhood pressures in athletics, and how he overcame criticism to chase his dreams.

    Guest Bio:
    Grammy-nominated, singer-songwriter, and producer Mali Music began creating and arranging his own material at the age of twelve. Since then, he’s gone on to receive acclaim in both the sacred and secular music worlds with his albums, 2econd Coming, Mali Is…, and The Book of Mali. His song “Beautiful” also made the Billboard charts and propelled him into the mainstream music industry.

    Notes & Quotes:

    “I loved falling into just the shadow of the Most High, like, disappearing in worship.”

    “I just never wanted the Word of God . . . to be detested or underestimated like I was . . . .”

    “You gotta trust God. And I just love that music is just gonna be connected to what God is doing.”

    "Following God When You’re Exhausted" with Trip Lee

    Plenty of people in our lives can burden us with expectations. Reach Records’ rapper, author, and preacher Trip Lee knows this all-to-well, as his childhood was painted by a strong family legacy.

    "Finding God and Finding Your People" with Tedashii

    "Finding God and Finding Your People" with Tedashii

    We are all looking for a place to belong, whether it be in clubs at our schools or cliques at our workplaces. However, Texas-born rapper Tedashii knows firsthand that the “home-shaped holes” in our hearts are spaces that only God can truly fill. In this episode of Where Ya From? podcast from VOICES, Tedashii shares how Jesus took the passions that often made the artist stand out and turned them into a ministry and career.

    Guest Bio:
    Known for his distinct, deep voice and versatile flow, Texas-born rapper Tedashii made his debut in 2005 as a member of the 116 Clique, a hip-hop group associated with Reach Records. Since then, he’s gone on to an acclaimed solo career—his 2014 album Below Paradise even debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard 200s albums chart. More recently, he’s launched his first podcast: The Dash.

    Notes & Quotes:

    “All the while God was orchestrating the path, using football, using family, painful points, and moments in history to get me to this moment. Like I tell everybody, I went to Baylor to get saved, not to get a degree.”

    “It’s not enough that you get to run around and share the gospel with your friends. They can reject that. But when you make public stances, it draws a line in the sand.”

    “And now I think the music is both the thing that glorifies God and the way in which I choose to wield it is the thing that glorifies God.” 

    “Grief, in my opinion, is love persisting.”
