Back in July, we began (or re-began) some very uncomfortable conversations about race in America. Freemasonry’s own story in the United States is woven from the threads of race relations among our people. In this episode, we talk with the Reverend Professor Quadricos Driskell, who among his many talents is a health care policy expert, a Baptist minister, a professor who teaches courses on race relations at George Washington University, and is Worshipful Master of his Lodge. It’s the beginning of a series of uncomfortable conversations about race and Freemasonry, and Q helps us navigate through it with candor, compassion and courage. It’s a conversation that no matter what the pigmentation of your skin happens to be, we all need to be a part of.
Originally, we lost Q’s audio track, but thanks to some time-consuming forensic reconstruction we were able to restore the damaged file. It’s the least we could do.
