Austin, who shares, “‘Faith in Living Color’ was designed for anyone, but white people in particular, who want to understand the basics of why race and racism are such important and such difficult topics for white people to engage. It was specifically designed to look at these issues from pastoral and sociological and theological standpoints.”
