This Wednesday at 9am on the Peace & Justice Report we’ll learn about Ruby, the new musical written by West Coast Black Theatre’s Nate Jacobs. Then we’ll talk to Rev. Paul Raushenbush from Interfaith Alliance about the rise of Christian nationalism.
About Ruby: “On August 3, 1952, the unthinkable happened: a Black woman murdered a white doctor in Live Oak, Florida, guaranteeing a conviction for the woman bold enough to commit such a shocking crime and bringing celebrated writer Zora Neale Hurston to town to cover the story for a northern newspaper. A powerful and haunting world-premiere musical.”
About separation of church and state, Rev. Raushenbush says “I strongly believe that you’ll find religious diversity in every community. It’s important to recognize that’s fundamentally a strength for America, not a threat. This circle has to include everyone. White Christians don’t get to say, ‘This is our country and the rest are lucky to be invited.’”
