Rev. Billy Michael Honor is the director of faith organizing for Faith in Action’s partner in the state of Georgia, the New Georgia Project. In this episode, we spoke with Rev. Honor at his office in Atlanta. We recorded in March 2020, before the global call to flatten the curve of the Coronavirus pandemic required us to suspend travel and practice physical distancing.
Rev. Honor is a public scholar, faith leader, and civic organizer whose progressive and compelling insights have made him a sought-after preacher, lecturer, and social commentator. In this conversation, we talked about building a digital faith community, respectability politics, cultural imperialism and the ideology behind his upcoming book, The Miseducation of the Church Negro.
