Dr. Jacqueline Rivers On The Church’s Response to Racism

In this episode we’re talking with about racism, the Church’s response and what can be done from a policy perspective to promote racial equity. We are joined by Dr. Jacqueline Rivers, the director of the Seymour Institute for Black Church and Policy Studies. She earned her doctorate in African-American Studies and Sociology at Harvard University. Dr. Rivers is a doctoral fellow in the Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality & Social Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.

In our mailbag segment we’re covering a question about public partisan statements being made by priests and religious sisters.
