Welcome to BTR NEWS w/ Scotty Reid as I broadcast from behind the enemy lines of Corporate USA. We have a guest joining us tonight…
Author, public speaker, writer, and 2020 Presidential Candidate Mark Charles returns to Abolition Today.
Mark Charles is a dynamic and thought-provoking public speaker, writer, and consultant. The son of an American woman (of Dutch heritage) and a Navajo man, he teaches with insight into the complexities of American history regarding race, culture, and faith in order to help forge a path of healing and conciliation for the nation. He is one of the leading authorities on the 15th-century Doctrine of Discovery and its influence on US history and its intersection with modern-day society. Mark co-authored, along with Soong-Chan Rah, the new book entitled “Unsettling Truths: The Ongoing, Dehumanizing Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery ” (IVP, 2019). Mark ran as an independent candidate for the US Presidency in the 2020 election.
We’ll speak about his recent personal revelations regarding Washington, DC’s emancipation day, his future goals, and discuss the slavery abolitionist efforts to date.
Of course, we’ll fire things up with music and poetry, and bring the abolitionist ancestors’ words back to life for a new generation in our Bridging The Gap segment.
