Talking Racism At A Denver Church; What It’s Like To Foster Parent

Listen Now

At one of the oldest African-American churches in Denver recently, about 200 people gathered in the sanctuary to hear the pastor and his wife, who's a diversity consultant, share their views on racism. The topic: Whites can't just be allies in fighting discrimination; they must be leaders. Also, in Colorado there are more kids who need foster homes than adults willing to take them in. People of color, especially, aren't signing up.
