Walking the Walk with Cornell Brooks
The Guys Like Us Podcast is joined with Cornell Brooks who is a Professor and Director of the William Monroe Trotter Collaborative at Harvard University, former President of the NAACP, attorney, minister, husband, and dad. We dive into the importance of knowing biblical texts, constitutional documents, and notable historical figures. Cornell elaborates on the Old Testament and the books of the prophetic and its influence on his career. He speaks on modeling ministry, walking the walk, practicing what you preach. His successes at the NAACP were numerous in the tumultuous times with police brutality, the Flint, Michigan water crisis, among others. Cornell details what prophetic ministry looks like on the ground and rallying the numbers in response to the cry for justice across the nation.
