Our guests are the Rev. Nathan Ryan, assistant minister of the UU Church of Baton Rouge, and Kimberly Hampton, candidate for ministry and blogger. We talk about the difference in racism between the north and the south, how as a nation misremember our American history around racism and slavery, and how institutional UUism doesn’t consistently show up for times of crisis in the black community. The panel and guests also react to the breaking news about the UUA’s $500,000 severance package.
