Rev. Dr. Thomas Shepherd
Discrimination, Race Relations, and Diversity Awareness: Can the Cops and the Citizens Find Common Cause?
Thursday, March 12, 2015
Dr. Shepherd's special guests include a seminary student and an undergraduate. Dinah Chapman is a senior at Unity Institute® and Seminary. As an African American, she painfully recognizes the problems both communities—black and white—are facing. Her insights are gracious yet sharp-edged, patient yet insistent. Dr. Shepherd's other guest is a "seriously white" undergraduate whose parents are German and Scandinavian. She is preparing to become a public school teacher through studies at University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC). As a Millennial woman who grew up in the Deep South, attending majority-minority public schools, Emily Shepherd (Dr. Tom's "middle daughter") brings a fresh perspective to the discussions. Don't miss this discussion.
