Healing Race Feed Drop | "Black" and White:" Should We Identify with the Color of Our Skin?

Listen on

Episode notes

The Village Square is truly delighted to offer you a feed drop episode of Healing Race, from a pair of friends (one black, one white)—college friends who spent the first couple decades of their relationship not talking about race. Then they decided it was past time so they just jumped right in. 

Find Healing Race on Apple podcasts.

This episode ("Black" and White:" Should We Identify with the Color of Our Skin?") Todd asks Andre if he would ideally like to live in a world where we don’t identify ourselves with the color of our skin. Should we want to live in a world where the groups we identify with are not based on our color, and what are the challenges in getting there? Here's more about their show:

Talking about race isn’t always easy. Andre and Todd decided to go deep on the role of race and the state of race relations in the U.S... and to make their conversations public so that others could see what a first conversation about race might look like, where no topic is off the table and no views are stifled or censored, but where they always listen, respect, and seek to understand - even and especially when they see things differently. And they are now welcoming guests on the show to experience that same kind of radical openness, honesty, and empathy. Healing Race is about having the real-deal, don’t-filter-what-you-think conversation about race, and they would love for you to join. 

We hope you'll spend some time getting to know Todd and Andre, as they really need to get to know each other—and show the rest of us how it's done. You can read more about the pair, and their friendship in The Fulcrum.
