Is the ‘American Dream’ the same for everyone?
I think most of us agree it’s not. And things need to change.
People of color in America today are hurting and the murder of George Floyd may have finally gotten people’s attention.
This special episode of the Strong By Design podcast features two men of God. Christian brothers. Kingdom minded black men that are willing to share their story to help white America see the world through their lens. It’s time to listen.
Thank you, David Mills and Brown Charite, for your honesty, passion, character and willingness to share.
"I see the pain and it just creates sadness. That's the overwhelming word that just pushes on me." -David Mills
