The Revd A. D. A. France-Williams
On the podcast this week, the Revd A. D. A France-Williams reads from his book Ghost Ship: Institutional racism and the Church of England (SCM Press).
“To love oneself as a black person in the UK is an act of resistance to the pressures and powers that are actively bearing down to disassemble whatever sense of identity one can muster.”
Ghost Ship is reviewed here by the Revd Arlington W. Trotman, who calls it “unbelievably courageous and timely”.
Read an interview with A. D. A. France-Williams here and an extract from the book here.
Ghost Ship is available from the Church Times Bookshop for the special price of £15.99.
Audio produced by Damien Mahoney of Caulbearers.
Podcast edited by Serena Long.
