Black Lives Matter pt.2: Racism and the Church

Trigger warning: discussion of racist experiences. Race, Racism, Racist slurs.

This is part 2 of our episode talking about race, racism, and the church. If you haven't already listened to part 1, we'd really recommend you start there.

Listen as Hannah talks to Lusa Nsegna-Ngoy (Diocese of Leicester's BAME Mission and Ministry Enabler and Church Army Board member) about his powerful spoken word poem in response to George Floyd's murder, as well as his hopes for the church moving forward to become a more interracial church.

There's a point to pause if you want to listen in two sittings, but do keep listening as Hannah chats to Collette Dorgu (Church Army Evangelist in Training). Collette shares some of her good and bad experiences of race and the church, and why fighting racism will mean more people feel able to be part of the church.

Mentioned in this episode:

  • What do you see? - A poem in response to the tragic murder of George Floyd (words by Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy)
