Impolite Conversation #5: #BlackLivesMatter and Black Protestant Activism

On this episode, we talk to Melina Abdullah, a scholar of and activist within the #BlackLivesMatter movement about how the movement sees itself and what role faith plays, and then talk with Khalilah Brown-Dean about activism in the “black church” more broadly. And in One Last Thing, Dan is gearing up to geek out and Tim is contemplating stick figures who blow up the planet.

Impolite Conversation is a program at the intersection of religion and politics and hosted by Tim Hill and Dan Clanton. The show is edited by Bryan Patrick Kelley and sponsored by Doane College. You can follow the show on Twitter @impconvo.
