Why We Need to Talk about Race

Minneapolis rally to support the people of Baltimore

My friend, Dr. Ellis Ingram, is a retired African American physician who had an encounter at a Missouri store with racial undertones. His wife, Pam, was also followed at another store because she is African American. They both lead a ministry to children and teenagers in the public housing projects called “Granny’s House.” They had a conversation at their church about race with the pastor facilitating, Phil Schaefer of Christian Fellowship in Columbia, MO.

This is a 44 minute listen but it is well worth the time. I think the pastor did a good job facilitating this sensitive conversation in a predominantly white affluent congregation.
