A Long Overdue Conversation

Author: Calvin T Samuel

The Revd Dr Calvin Samuel, Methodist Minister in Rochford and Rayleigh, Essex, encourages people to have open and honest conversations about racism and provides in this video a faith-filled starting point for having those conversations.

“I do know that if we’re going to find a way forward, we’re going to need to have the long overdue conversations like these about race: to name some of the elephants in the room; to acknowledge our painful past; to hold each other to account under God. And we, people of colour, need you to care about these issues and translate that caring into action. So please, let’s have this long overdue conversation about racism.”
