*“Where is the Hope?”  with Rev. June R. Cooper*

Signs of Hope-Derrick Bell a noted Harvard Professor wrote a book called
Faces at the Bottom of the Well, The Permanence of Racism (1992) in which
he states that racism is a permanent feature of American society. Do we
accept this claim or do we see hope rising for recent protest and calls for
police reform?

the City at Old South Church in Copley Square.
