Interview w/Author Kelly Brown Douglas: Stand Your Ground

How can we think theologically about the death of Trayvon Martin? What are the cultural and historical roots of “stand-your-ground” laws? How deeply embedded is white supremacy in the DNA of American culture?

Dave Krueger talks with Kelly Brown Douglas about her book Stand Your Ground: Black Bodies and the Justice of God. Douglas is an Episcopal priest and professor of religion at Goucher College in Maryland.

This interview was originally released as Episode #37 of MRB Radio’s First Impressions program on June9, 2015.
