Dr. King was born in Atlanta and was murdered in Memphis. And though we’ve seen change since then, there are still unarmed Black and Brown people dying in senseless violence. Just this past week, police murdered Tyre Nichols in Memphis. As our country reckons with another act of police brutality, we bring you an episode with two Black Bishops, our own Bishop Wright and Bishop Phoebe Roaf of West Tennessee – the diocese that includes the city of Memphis.
In the episode, they have a real conversation focused on how we as Christians find hope in times that some find none. They take up where the church has a responsibility to respond to community tragedy and name steps to make sure we don’t push comfort over change. Listen in for the full conversation.
