Idelette McVicker is a native of South Africa, currently living in Canada with her family, and ministering to Christians like me (in America and globally) on how to fight against white supremacy in our societies. She is the author of Recovering Racists, the founder of She Loves Media Society, and the Dangerous Women community. In this discussion, Idelette opens up about her own journey from part being born into the community in South Africa, the Afrikaners, who created Apartheid, to identifying and owning her own racism, to journeying with others in their desire to recover from theirs. Whether you are white, Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color, you’ll benefit from hearing Idelette’s heart in this important conversation.
