66: Coffee with Jason Callahan


RSS PointerJason Callahan serves as a Chaplain at Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Allied Health Professions. At the time of the interview he was also the President and Moderator of the Black Alumni Association of Union Presbyterian Seminary.

I am happy to re-publish part of this interview with Jason. It is important to talk about race, bias and prejudice with others since it is so difficult to see it in ourselves and possibly impossible to eradicate completely. Every human’s brain is mapped in childhood leaving us with much more subconscious activity than we recognize. We each experience ourselves as very rational and clear thinking. When truly we need one another to help us see ourselves.
