Compromise has three colors.
The American church has a history of creating and maintaining racist ideas and practices. This audio original recording from New York Times bestselling author Jemar Tisby is based on the themes introduced in The Color of Compromise, but goes a step further, showing how compromise has three distinct colors: green, white, and red. Green represents the greed than accompanies support of racism. It is white, representing the white supremacy that views white people as inherently superior to other skin colors. And it is red, representing the blood that has been spilled—and continues to be shed—to fight against racism.
Tisby offers a powerful challenge to avoid complicity with racism by taking a bold stand for racial justice, starting today.

Informative, challenging and hopeful.
If you haven’t read any of Jemar Tisby’s books this audio lesson is a great introduction to his examination of the historical complicity of the American Christian Church with slavery and racism. If you have already read The Color of Compromise you will appreciate this audio companion to the book. It is a good refresher with new information as well. I’m a white Christian woman, and this information is hard, no doubt. But Jemar Tisby is a patient and thoughtful teacher, I highly recommend his work.
There is one very difficult story told of a torturous lynching, but he gives a heads up so that you can fast forward through that part if you are unable to listen. Listen if you can though, their story bears witness to a part of our history that we must not forget.
