Responding to the Urgency of Now: A Conversation with Dylan Marron
Sun, September 27, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
How can we be responsive to the demands of racial justice and work through the difficult conversations about it? How do we balance history and the experience of those whose reality is not the same as those who are in power? How can we have constructive conversations with those whose views differ from ours, even radically?
The Rev. Winnie Varghese speaks with Dylan Marron, activist, comedian, and creator of the Conversations with People Who Hate Me podcast about diverse perspectives in justice.
