Gina and Jason sit down this week with Paula Hulet and Cornel N. Morton, Ph.D. Paula and Cornel have been working together to create a book group dealing with racism. They share their experiences with their book group and how it has been gratifying and enlightening for everyone involved. Racism is, and has been, a very important issue to walk through. However with recent events like the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor many are waking up to the racism that has been there the whole time.
THANK YOU TO REV. PAULA HULET AND CORNEL N. MORTON, PHD
