E136 Why Black Lives Matter w/Gloria Purvis (Creedal Catholic Crossover)
Why Black Lives Matter w/Gloria Purvis
Today on this Vernacular Podcast + Creedal Catholic crossover episode, Gloria Purvis joins us to talk about racial justice, George Floyd, systemic racism, and our national moment. It's a really good conversation, and Gloria has challenging words for the Church and for all Americans.
NOTE: The title of this episode, "Why Black Lives Matter," expresses unqualified support for the singular idea that Black Lives do matter. It is not an endorsement of all of the tenets of the organization Black Lives Matter or an expression of de facto membership of that organization.
