Connections with Mike Thom and Colleen Houde
The healing journey of a recovering racist
Feb 8, 2023
As a white Afrikaner woman growing up in South Africa during apartheid, Idelette McVicker was steeped in a community and a church that reinforced white supremacy and shielded her from seeing her neighbours' oppression. But a series of circumstances led her to begin questioning everything she thought was true about her identity, her country, and her faith.
She shares this long, slow journey of healing the past, making things right, changing old stories, and becoming human together in her book, Recovering Racists: Dismantling White Supremacy and Reclaiming Our Humanity
Today on Connections, Idelette shares how her life has changed and how she intends to help others make things right as well.
