3 Things Privileged Christians Can Learn from the Trayvon Martin Case

Christian Social Psychologist Christena Cleveland offers an insightful response at the conclusion of the George Zimmerman trial.  Cleveland does not agonize upon the difficulties of the trial and verdict itself because she understands with the editors of The Washington Post that “the central tragedy of this case—the death of a 17-year-old boy who had been on a simple errand to get snacks – remains.”  Instead, she highlights the tension surrounding the case as a teachable moment for the church.  Christena, thank you for applying your sharp mind and pen to this crucial matter.
