The idea for this episode came from one of our listeners who encountered the 13 Black Lives Matters principles in her child’s classroom. Wanting to know more, she reached out to Mama Bear. Amy knew exactly who to talk with – Monique Duson, co-founder of The Center for Biblical Unity. In this episode, Amy and Monique discuss the BLM principles and offer parents advice on how to discuss them with their kids.
