In our Farewell episode, we look back at what Bearing Witness has meant to Anthony and Georgia and some of the moments that made it special. We also look ahead to where hosts see themselves moving forward. From, now, Pastor Anthony’s Ministry work to Georgia’s continued coverage as an independent journalist. Goodbyes are often hard; this one more than others.
On this second to last episode of Bearing Witness, Anthony and Georgia Discuss developments in the Potter Trial and check in with Humanities Center CEO Kevin Lindsey on being one of the financial backers and supporters of the Racial Reckoning Project, and how we move ahead in this time or reckoning.
Anthony and Georgia talk with local clergy members Jim Bear Jacobs and Pamela Ngunjiri who lead the racial Justice department of the Minnesota Council of Churches. As Indigenous and Black faith leaders, how are they dealing with this moment of reckoning both in support of the community, and in care of themselves?
This week Anthony and Georgia discuss the decision not to bring charges against the officers in the killing of Winston Smith as well as the upcoming vote in Minneapolis that could transform Policing to an office of Public Safety. They also check in with local author, healer, and scholar Ebony Adedayo about centering the wellness of black women and community in general.
