What are some ways that Christians can help to promote racial justice in our country?
Many Christians are reluctant to partner with non-Christians who are working toward racial justice. Do you have any advice for those individuals?
Do you find that Christians tend to overestimate the degree to which Christians have been involved with racial justice activism in our country?
I know you are writing a book right now. Can you tell us about it?
How can we work toward reparations in regard to wealth, power, and truth?
I find that many people have a strong negative reaction to the concept of reparations? Have you found that to be true? If so, how do you address that?
How would you respond to White person who says that they don't have any responsibility for actions that other White people did 100 years ago?
One of the big arguments against reparations is that it is too messy to try to figure out who is owed what. What is your response to that type of pushback?
What are some things that Christian organizations can do to help support reparation efforts?
You have done historical research on the topic of reparations. Why has talk of reparations so rarely translated into action?
