Following the National Prayer Breakfast, Dr. David Anderson moderated a session called “Questions We Are Afraid to Ask: Race, Religion, and Relationships.” This was the brainchild of Dr. Barbara Williams Skinner whose longtime relationship with the prayer breakfast dates back to her joint work with her late husband, Tom Skinner. Other panelists included Ambassador Tony Hall, Rosemary Trible and, Mark Christensen. The program lived up to its name. Audience questions ranged from “why are white women afraid of Black men?” to whether Christianity could be reconciled with science, and other provocative issues.
Black Church Update attended the session and caught up with Dr. Williams Skinner - watch her overview here.
