“What needs to be repaired? First we have to ask ourselves, 'What’s been broken?’” — Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil
Listen in on our interview with Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil, professor of reconciliation studies, as we discuss the complex work of pursuing racial justice and reconciliation in our world.
I’m a new host on this podcast, and as we transition into our upcoming season, I’ve been digging through our archives and reviewing some of my favorite conversations led by our previous host, Caroline Triscik. This summer, we are showcasing a few of those conversations here and I’m really excited to share them with you.
Let’s listen in on Caroline’s conversation with Dr. Brenda Salter-McNeil, professor and Christian leader and advocate for justice. This interview originally aired in August 2020, but it’s still very relevant today. I really loved listening again and hearing how Dr. Brenda describes her own experience in racial justice work as a journey, something that is still in progress rather than something that is completely finished. She talks candidly about the ways her own ideas have shifted and developed over the past several years, and she also offers some specific advice for women in academia. So have a listen! We’re so glad you’re here with us.
