What does it mean to "become human"? Or to humanize one another instead of racializing one another, which has become so entwined with how we perceive and engage with other people in this American society? In this special holiday episode of Left of Black, host Dr. Mark Anthony Neal is joined by the Duke University Chapel's first Black dean, the preeminent Rev. Dr. Luke A. Powery as he discusses his latest book, "Becoming Human: The Holy Spirit and the Rhetoric of Race," published by Westminster John Knox Press.
