Ep. 5 Your Righteous and Political Black Mind Pt2
Politics can often be guided by ethics drawn from religion. December’s episode of Real Talk: Black Minds Matter is entitled Your Righteous and Political Black Mind. Religion influences what political party many stand by and what political viewpoints they agree with based on their religious upbringing. There is a power within the church that can shift the narrative of politics for many Black people and also guide them in their times of darkness. Our Co-hosts Andrea Brown and Nia Jones are joined by Rev. Brenda D. White and will discuss the role religion plays in politics and the REAL impact that religious leaders have on the righteous and political Black mind!
