Conversations Of A Sistah is back! And our topic of discussion is Racism in America!
Racism has fostered inequality and discrimination for centuries, as well as influencing how we relate to other human beings as a whole. Racial hatred and bigotry is also on the rise in this country at an all-time high. It’s like history is repeating itself with the massive killings of unarmed African-America men, women and children.
Since the rise in these killings around the country, the unrest has unveiled the “Black Lives Matter” organization. An International Activist Movement, originating in the African American Community that campaigns against violence geared toward people of color. This organization has in many ways adopted some of the same strategies as the Civil Rights Movement. The purpose of the movement was to make sure that all citizens, all races, all religious groups and all nationalities are treated equally under the law.
Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” on Blog Talk Radio as we commemorate the birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther King on the discussion of “Racism In America Today ~ As It Relates To Dr. Martin Luther King’s Vision.
My special guest on this topic is the Rev. Floyd Thompkins (pictured left), former pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in San Jose CA. One of the second oldest black churches west of the Mississippi River. As of today Rev. Thompkins is also the director of the Center for Innovation in Ministry at San Francisco Theological Seminary.
