Introducing "Creative Tension: The Jim Crow Years"

Rev. Elliott Robinson has launched the “Creative Tension” podcast to tell the stories of people and periods…forgotten by history. Creative Tension will begin with a fresh look at “The Jim Crow Years.” Given the current state of race relations in this country, Elliott believes it’s important to look far more closely at this defining period in American history. It lasted for 90+ years (1876 until 1967), yet it’s only talked about in terms of the Civil Rights movement (1955-1967).
What really happened? How did it work? Why was it so suffocating? Was it all “Gone with the Wind” and “Andy Griffith?” Why don’t we want to talk about it? Why isn’t it properly taught? Are we repeating history because we’ve failed to examine the Jim Crow years?
