Many carry with them what might be described as a “broken truth” regarding other’s social identities that inhibit them from celebrating others’ full humanity. Broken truths can be difficult to name. Often a poignant story can help get at the heart of the matter, as it did at MountainTop 2015. This is a video excerpt of a retelling of Douglas Wood’s Old Turtle and the Broken Truth.
Melvin Bray had the distinct privilege of co-facilitating MountainTop 2015, 8-10 June, in Atlanta, GA. MountainTop is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, intersectional summit of leaders of moral courage from around the US, convened by Auburn Theological Seminary and designed to advance a multifaith movement for justice. The 2015 theme was RACIAL EQUITY. This DesignShop was facilitated in conjunction with Rob Evans from Imaginal Labs and Melinda Weekes-Laidlow from Weekes in Advance.
