Throughout Black History Month 2022, Lisa Sharon Harper invites you to pilgrimage through the story of her family—which is also the story of race in America—from the colonial era through Inauguration Day 2021.
Watch and understand the impact of racial hierarchy on one family, the role of the church in establishing this hierarchy, and the faith implications of Brown, colonized Jesus.
Join Lisa and a diverse community of thought leaders as they consider how to stop simply talking about race and finally repair what it broke in the world.
Add your voice to the chorus that will rise in the final week of #BlackFortuneMonth, as readers call on Congress to move forward on truth-telling and reparations.
