Following the tragic shooting of an unarmed Black teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, MO, the ensuing protests and the local police’s startling response, many in the faith community have mobilized around issues of racial violence and injustice in America. This week Welton will sit down with one of the leaders of this movement, Pastor Michael McBride, head of PICO National Network’s Lifelines to Healing Campaign. Welton and Pastor McBride will discuss the racial implications of the events in Ferguson, the continuing struggle between communities of color and the criminal justice system, and PICO’s efforts to organize “Live Free Sabbaths” in churches around the country this weekend.
