Over the last three months (June-August 2020) your book, The Color of Compromise, has had a major impact in our country. What has that experience been like for you?
What recommendations do you have for Christians who want to work for racial justice?
There is a lot of debate these days about what is true and factual. How can we navigate that in terms of understanding the history of our country and the organizations we are a part of?

We often see a pattern of progress being made, backlash, and then regression. Do you see examples of that in your work as well?
How can we create new ministry models where leaders aren't reluctant to pursue racial justice for fear that they will lose their funding?
