Ep. 2: Juneteenth Is Not The Fourth Of July (Plus: Ex-Slave Narrative)
In this episode of "News With Nicola" we take a look at Juneteenth becoming a new federal holiday. We also briefly take a look at Republican dissent to the bill — apparently celebrating the end of slavery is "unAmerican." And we wrap things up by listening to a few snippets of an archival interview with a formerly enslaved woman from Texas who comments on the first Juneteenth and what church was like for enslaved African Americans.

Ep. 1: Critical Race Theory, Nikole Hannah-Jones, and the SBC (Guest: Glenn E. Bracey)
Welcome to another episode of “News With Nicola,” a Faithfully Magazine podcast brought to you by Faithfully Media and hosted by Nicola A. Menzie, managing editor at faithfullymagazine.com. In this episode of “News With Nicola” we take a look at three items closely related to everyone’s new favorite subject: Critical Race Theory, or CRT. We look at the rash of state laws banning Critical Race Theory from being taught in classrooms; University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill’s strange and unusual decision to not offer tenure to Nikole Hannah-Jones, head of “The 1619 project”; and finally, we look at the Southern Baptist Convention which has its annual meeting in a few days. To help us sort through some CRT questions, we talk with Dr. Glenn E. Bracey, assistant professor of sociology at Villanova University. I’ll tell you more about Dr. Bracey as we get closer to the interview. A quick reminder here: Only Faithfully Magazine Partner subscribers can access the full, unedited video and transcript of my conversation with Dr. Bracey.
