What is one thing you can do to help dismantle racism? How can we work to fix our broken economic system? How would you describe the privilege that you have? In this curated series of #BlackLivesMatter episodes from Thirty Seconds or Less, we ask these questions and more.
Eric & Alton by Jacqui Lewis:
"Two years ago Eric Garner was killed in an encounter with the police, wrestled to the ground, chocked to death. His crime: selling loose cigarettes."
We Are a Sleepless People by Waltrina Middleton:
"We are a sleepless people. Black and brown folks don’t have the privilege of rest in America."
All of Creation by Jacqui Lewis:
"All of creation is waiting on us to dismantle racism."
A Loss for Words by Marcus Halley:
"Perhaps the vocation of the church is to follow Jesus into those oppressed spaces and to amplify silenced voices."
