As we seek to heal the racial divides in our nation, we need to start where every broken relationship begins to heal, by listening carefully to discover real needs. Sweeping solutions simply cover over the problem. Coming up on Equipped, sociologist George Yancey joins Chris Brooks with an alternative to colorblindness and antiracism where we all seek the common good so everyone can thrive!
