Can “Wild Goose” Be Reborn?

On Route 25 from Knoxville, TN to Hot Springs, NC

When Amy Hayes, from Baptist News Global asked to speak to me about the Wild Goose Festival, I was initially hesitant. I had just begun a leave from church work (which I am currently still on), in part to regroup from having had to do intense professional and personal race work on top of managing the pandemic with my congregation since March 2020. But when I look at the resulting article, I’m proud to have been included. This piece affirms a call for rebirth and reimagining that many people of color who work with predominantly or historically white organizations are often left to shout alone into the hurricane of white supremacy. The message here travels far beyond “the Goose.”

I will let the article and the voices of Amy Hayes, Mike Morrell, Kenji Kuramitsu, Alicia T. Crosby and my dear friend Joy Carroll Wallis speak for themselves.
