Du Bois, Racism, & Hope with Paul Deaderick

img_20160402_210516

Paul Deaderick is an 84 year old man I met while leading a book study on The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Du Bois. Listening to his stories during those 6 weeks opened my eyes to our country’s racial struggles in ways that have helped me to dive deeper into the conversation. I invite you to join me as I listen once again to stories about his life as well as his words of wisdom learned through struggle, perseverance, and a never ending sense of hope that often characterizes the African American voice during the Civil Rights Movement.

  1. This is one of the most uplifting and inspiring interviews I have ever heard. It reminds me not only of how far we have come, but how important it is to continue sharing these amazing storied with future generations. It really wasn’t that long ago and as a society, we need to all be knowledgeable of our past.
