How History Can Give Us Hope with Dr. Jemar Tisby

How History Can Give Us Hope with Dr. Jemar Tisby

Do you ever feel helpless, and wonder what we can *actually* do about racism? We may not be guilty for the actions of the past, but we are responsible for the ramifications of racism that are felt today. Historian, Dr. Jemar Tisby, speaks with Sharon about this very topic. It takes courage to make change because fear can be a stumbling block. We fear entering conversations that seem complicated or difficult or fear the push back or judgment we may get from our safe communities, but history shows us that choosing to do the right thing can bring us hope and peace.
