How Rev. Dr. Esau McCaulley makes sense of his journey as a Black man and a Christian
The audiobook of this was incredible but I had to buy the physical copy just to be able to underline different sections and pull quotes. I love seeing you two together!
I am so grateful for your work Jemar. I Hope Dr. McCauley's book is on audible. It will be my next purchase. Raised and currently living in the south, this highlights the aspects of how to endure racism. I listen to your podcasts and books on repeat. https://www.facebook.com/573741310/posts/pfbid02ZnVRUr469gZrYupKK9qmLLpZRXTmNBeY5rFiGmpggzcLYnBWtfyxPiDCzVosUJPrl/?mibextid=7i0OJ8
I have Dr. McCaulley's latest book on my 'too-read' list. So appreciate both of you and how you have enlarged my world and understanding.
Bought and read Dr. McCaulley's memoir last month. It is powerful and encouraging. It's also instructive to those of us who are contemplating our own family narratives. And Dr. McCaulley's advise to Jemar regarding writing at the end of this beautiful interview is inspirational. I'm going to be thinking about "write yourself into a corner and trust God to get you out" for awhile. That's an invitation to some terrifying truth telling. Thank you.

Thank you! I’m so ecstatic!
I really enjoyed your interview! I also heard him interviewed on The Holy Post. I also appreciated your interview Why I’m Still a Christian. Thanks for all the good work you are doing!

I commented earlier about posting this podcast on my social media but I’ve been digesting the contents all day. Thank you for having these great guest on your podcast. I have definitely added his book to my wish list!! I especially like the ending, when he says his obsession is with black authors.....I grew up in the North, born in 1961, not ever really being exposed to any information other than news, and TV!! And as I grew took that narrow minded path to just take care of myself and why should I know anything else. I’m good. Everyone and everything else doesn’t matter.
I even became an educator!!! As far as education, well, now seeing that what I was taught then and still taught now doesn’t even come close to our real country’s history! I have been immersing myself in every black author book that I can find!!
You have to understand other people’s experience to know certain truths. It’s the only way that my mind has been opened, to not only what our country has done and continues to do, but who I have been and what I need to do to become a better voice for ALL in this country.
When my friends speak of issues, I will now ask what is the name of the last black authored book they read. That will tell me all I need to know of how the conversation will go.
Thanks again for this podcast, all you write and do!!
I put a picture on my instagram page and the link in my comments but I am NOT technological and can’t figure out how to share that here!!! I screenshot the post but can’t seem to figure out how to share it in these comments!! I am @cannq on instagram. Elisabeth Ann is my profile name.
Thank you Jemar. I don't interact much but I am intentionally listening to voices that have not been lifted up in my circles. I see you. I hear you. I am learning. I know there is a personal cost for speaking out. Thank you.
