The founder and managing editor of R3, Rev. Dr. Andre Johnson, was a guest on the podcast Theology Live. Hosted by Meredith Day, Dr. Johnson discussed the intersection of theology and race, focusing on the recent white supremacist rally in #Charlottesville and the work he and others are doing here in Memphis with #TakeEmDown901. He also discussed the hashtag he created, #WhiteChurchQuiet and the one created by Christopher Stroop, #EmptythePews. He argued that in order to understand race and all of its ramifications and manifestations today, one must begin to have an understanding of the theological foundations of race and why we believe what we believe as the authentic gospel.
