Duane and Reyna Britton return to the studio to have a candid conversation about racism in the Church, culture clashes, and their experiences as a multi-racial couple. The Brittons explain why people gravitate toward what’s familiar, the differences between racism and biases, and what we miss out on by not inviting other cultures in.
