My friend Phil is back! Phil Allen has written a second book and it is incredible! The Prophetic Lens takes us back in history to the infamous racist film shown at the White House all the way through the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s to Darnell Frazier’s courageous capturing and posting of George Floyd’s murder. In this conversation, we talk about the power of narrative in our lives, that is, how we learn what we learn, and how we choose to respond to that knowledge.
