Episode 4: How to Lead and Love Beyond Race with Lucretia Berry
Lucretia Berry, founder of Brownicity: The Art & Beauty of Living & Loving Beyond Race, a family-focused, grass roots initiative dedicated to advocacy, education and support for racial healing and ant-iracism, shares about her stories of faith and family in loving and leading beyond and across the divide of race. Her greatest gift is that of teaching, and she passionately, practically, and prophetically teaches us how to lead the church into multi-ethnic healing, hope, and ministry.
Lucretia authored, "What LIES Between Us: Fostering First Steps Towards Racial Healing Journal & Guide," designed specifically for ‘beginners’ to race conversations. The work she has done to help adults navigate skin tone and race conversations with children has earned Lucretia the reputation of being a ‘life-giving’ and ‘grace-filled’ facilitator. Lucretia earned her Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction and MA in English from Iowa State University, and her BA from South Carolina State University. She is a wife, a mother of three girls, and former college professor, who is passionate about helping people overcome boundaries through spiritual and social consciousness. Watch her most recent TedTalk for more information on how to lead children through conversations about race.
