Interview: Latasha Morrison Talks ‘Be the Bridge,’ Knowing History, and How Lament Leads to Justice

It’s 2019, and talking about race is still a social taboo in the U.S. inside and outside of many churches. Despite this, Latasha Morrison isn’t afraid to “tell the truth and shame the devil.”

Morrison is the founder and president of Be the Bridge to Racial Unity, an organization that seeks to move people and culture to racial healing, equity, and reconciliation. It’s a gargantuan undertaking that she pursues willingly and prayerfully. In this interview with Faithfully Magazine, Morrison discusses her new book, Be the Bridge: Pursuing God’s Heart for Racial Reconciliation, critical spiritual disciplines for bridge-builders, and why she’s sometimes apt to watch lackluster Hallmark movies.

The interview has been edited for clarity and brevity.

How did you become a bridge-builder?

If you ask anyone in my family—that’s just been like a part of who I am, just growing up, you know. I’ve always been a peacemaker. Regardless of the subject matter or places I’m intersecting in, it’s a part of who I am. It’s not something I’ve become in that sense. Even when I had my life plan done, it was like, you know, I’m a leader, so I’m a leader outside of whether I’m leading Be the Bridge or not. I’m a bridge-builder. It’s just a part of my DNA.
