We’re kicking off a series, Race Conversations, with Pastor Jonita Johnson (affectionately known as Mama Jay). This incredible woman is a preacher, mother, grandmother, author, and so much more – she even owned a company called Mama Jay’s Lip Smackin’ GOOD Hot & Spicy BBQ Sauce and Rubs. What doesn’t this woman do?! Collide Founder and Director Willow Weston got the privilege of interviewing Pastor Jay about her experience as a Black woman in different parts of the country, how we can tangibly love one another better, and what it means to reconcile under the name of Christ.
You can find Jonita’s books at https://www.lulu.com/spotlight/jay_cobid or on Amazon.
