What's it all about?

Wed 24 Jan 2018
By Tamala Ceasar

Do Christians find it hard to reconcile their faith, knowing the Churches part in the transatlantic slave trade? 

'Can you be woke and be a Christian?' produced and directed by Tamala Ceasar questions six Christian figures and 1 pan-Africanist on the tension between black Christians and their faith. Answering taboo questions on what it means to be woke and conscious, why the Church is sometimes reluctant to address the difficult parts of history involving the Churches role in the transatlantic slave trade and how that affects the black Christian identity. Pan Africanist and former Christian, Ryan J Bruce shares his journey from Christianity to conscious and tells us the real reason why he left the Church.
