Ask Me Anything: “The New Jim Crow, Pt 1 – Colorblindness Is The Problem” – Andy Nixon, Donyal Fraylon, & Deirdre Barrett
On our first podcast discussing “The New Jim Crow,” Andy and Donyale are joined by Trinity United Methodist’s Deirdre Barrett. The group discusses what stands out in the early chapters of Michelle Alexander’s book, including her statement that “colorblindness is not the answer, it’s the problem.”
The discussion fans out into the call each member felt like the book put on them, including learning to find beauty in diversity without being threatened by it, and trying to find an equal amount of justice and forgiveness.
The discussion will continue for two more weeks! Got a question? Visit us at fmhouston.com/ama.
