Are you afraid to walk in your own neighborhood? Tired of being blocked by white people who think they own the sidewalk? Are you an ally or accomplice?
Kashif Andrew Graham steps in as guest host for Matthias Roberts to talk to Rev. Broderick Greer about moving from allyship to accompliceship.
As a priest-on-staff at St. John’s Cathedral in Denver, Broderick directs liturgy and oversees ministry for people in their 20s and 30s.
Occasionally, Broderick offers lectures and facilitates conversations related to the interplay of culture, theology, and justice.
Broderick’s work has been in The Guardian, Teen Vogue, On Being, and The Washington Post.
