Religion News Service (RNS) announces the launch of the second season of Anti-Racism as a Spiritual Practice with Simran Jeet Singh.
During our first episode, on Wednesday January 27, 2020 at 3pmEST, Singh will talk with Lance Allred, the first legally deaf player in NBA history, an international inspirational speaker, author and TEDx star of “What is Your Polygamy?” A Mexican American, he was born and raised in a Mormon polygamist commune in rural Montana before his family left when he was 13. Join us as we explore how his unique experiences inform his commitment to racial justice.
Speakers in season two will build upon the lessons and discussions of season one, focusing on “how to get it right” while probing the intersection of faith, justice, and politics. Conversations will be either live or pre-taped. The pre-taped interviews were live lectures at Trinity College and Columbia University. Live interviews will first appear on RNS’s Facebook page. All full-length interviews will be made available on RNS’s website and YouTube page. All episodes are scheduled for 3:00 pm EST on a Wednesday.
The first season, originally titled Becoming Less Racist: Lighting the Path to Anti-Racism, launched in June 2020 following the widespread protests against police brutality and racial discrimination in the U.S.
