Letter of concern by ministers, leaders of Churches of Christ decries racial hatred

'We ... are deeply disturbed by multiple reported acts of violence that have been perpetrated recently against unarmed African American men and women.'

In an interview with The Christian Chronicle today, three black ministers discussed a letter of concern written in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody last week.

“We, the undersigned ministers and leaders of local congregations of churches of Christ across our nation, are deeply disturbed by multiple reported acts of violence that have been perpetrated recently against unarmed African American men and women,” says the letter being signed by a diverse group of Christians. “These incidents have forced us to come face-to-face with the ever-increasing numbers and the results of racial hatred.”

Watch the full interview below, featuring Warren Blakney Sr., minister for the North Peoria Church of Christ in Tulsa, Okla; Richard Price, minister for the North Green Street Church of Christ in Tupelo, Miss.; and David Watkins III, minister for the Twin City Church of Christ in Texarkana, Texas.
