Tru-ID Podcast

Tru-ID is a podcast that focuses on Christian apologetics and tackling the issues of our time from a Christian perspective. The host of Tru-ID, Adam Coleman, hopes to honor Jesus Christ by engaging questions about and objections to Christianity, particularly those related to the African American community. Podcast episodes will explore race, the allegation that Christianity is the "white man's religion", history, science, philosophy, current events, and various ways to defend the Christian faith. The central theme of the Tru-ID Podcast series is that our true identity is to be found in God who has made mankind in His image.

On July 5, 1852, Frederick Douglas presented what is perhaps his most famous speech, which is generally titled, "What to the Slave is the 4th of July?". At the Corinthian Hall, in Rochester New York, Douglass made this speech to the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society.

Douglass is by far my favorite figure of African American history. He had a brilliant mind that certainly shined through in his writings and accomplishments as an abolitionist. 

In this episode, we take a look at sections of "What to the Slave is the 4th of July?" and explore what many African Americans experience as a tension between that which can be appreciated about America/American history and grappling with harsh moral realities of America/American history.

I'll attempt to draw insights from Frederick Douglas and point out how this issue may intersect with how we go about doing so called "urban" apologetics. I'm somewhat shooting from the hip in this episode.

I haven't got it all completely worked out in my thinking yet and would welcome feedback from y'all out there. Enjoy...
