Replay - Under Our Skin: A Forum on Faith and Race

On February 16, 2017, please join some of today’s national leaders on issues of race and faith for Under Our Skin: A Forum on Race and Faith, presented by Tyndale House Publishers. This 3-hour live event, moderated by ESPN’s Sage Steele, will feature Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson, esteemed broadcaster James Brown, Hall of Fame football coach Tony Dungy, NFL Walter Payton Man-of-the-Year award winner Warrick Dunn, University of South Florida head football coach Charlie Strong, author and speaker Mo Isom, Executive Director of Desire Street Ministries and Heisman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel, Detroit pastor and author J. Kevin Butcher, and Executive Director of Restoration Academy Ben Sciacca, among others. Music will be performed by Lizzy Cameron. A donation will be made from Tyndale House Publishers to the foundations represented by the forum’s panelists.

After news broke in November 2014 that a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri, voted not to indict the police officer responsible for killing Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, Benjamin Watson penned a heartfelt Facebook post that expressed his anger, fear, embarrassment, sadness, confusion, hopelessness, and hopefulness over the situation. One year later, Watson further unpacked his thoughts in his book, Under Our Skin: Getting Real about Race and Getting Free from the Fears and Frustrations That Divide Us. Since its release, Watson has become a widely recognized voice on the
topics of race and faith in America.
  Watson’s primary desire in Under Our Skin is to equip readers with tools to engage in issues of race from another’s perspective.  The event’s speakers are committed to participating in a forum that will be thoughtful and respectful in its approach to challenging issues. At the conclusion of the forum, viewers will be provided with several actionable items to take back to their own communities to move the racial divide from an argument or political position toward a place of reconciliation and healing.
