Robert Chao Romero is a professor, pastor, and attorney. At heart, he is an evangelist. He is also the author of Brown Church (a book that had me teary-eyed in the introduction). In this conversation, Robert and I discuss the birth and history of what he calls the Brown Church as well as the origins of racial constructs in the Americas. For those of us who identify with the Brown Church, social justice and the spiritual borderlands are descriptors as well as coordinates for where we find home. Listen in – I think you’ll love this interview!
