The shooting of Michael Brown and the protests that followed in Ferguson, Missouri have propelled issues of race and the criminal justice system into the national spotlight. This week, Welton sits down with two prominent faith leaders in our nation’s capital to discuss how they’ve seen their communities and colleagues respond. The Very Rev. Dr. Gary Hall, Dean of the Washington National Cathedral, will share how these events have affected his own ministry, and the Cathedral’s ongoing work on national public policy issues. The Rev. Dr. Derrick Harkins, Senior Pastor at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church in Washington, DC will explore how incidents such as this resonate in the African-American faith community. This conversation promises to be a rare opportunity to hear from such distinguished speakers on an issue of such importance.
