"Listening to little items. I'm nailed any today. I'm took it to a rubber jones junior and we took it about his debut novel. The prophets Well as i said. I want to look at some of the characters on a amok lately but before we do. I'd like you to describe where at the beginning of the book. Certainly i characters find themselves. Which is this mississippi plantation that the enslaved people themselves coal empty is the halifax plantation. The name of the family. The but the the enslaved people call it. Mta described to us this place. Empty exists fictionally within the world of the prophets in about eighteen. Hundreds and i'm very nebulous about rhyme particularly because enslaved people often didn't have access to the tools to mark time outside of nature itself. So they didn't have watches or clocks. They didn't know their dates of birth. So they relied on The moon and the seasons and the sun and the sun set to l. them while time passed and so i wanted to honor that in the way by not being exactly clear on the time setting but for the purposes of readers. This is the eighteen hundreds. And it's in the what we call the deep south of the united states of america and that usually encompasses states like georgia louisiana alabama and mississippi. And they're known for being absolutely incredibly rule for the enslaved population generally thought to be more more cruel than states that were closer to the north and samuel on this plantation and they work as barn hands they in charge of tending to the animals and the barn and farm work and in such whereas other. Enslaved people wanna plantation force to work in the cotton fields and samuel isaiah work very closely in a very good at what they do partly because of how much they adore one. Another on it makes the work bearable that they have each other to love and they have somehow carved out a kind of state space within that barn and even the people who come to visit them so to feel that that safety as well even though the plantation itself is a treacherous and dangerous place and all of the enslaved. Call this plantation empty. Because that is what bayfield it does to you. Empties you out of your humanity. Not just them but also the people who own it and the people who own it hold the plantation elizabeth after the mother of the plantation owner. But it is a beautiful place. And that's what's that's the conflict that many of the enslave feel is that they are trapped on this place that is by this beautiful rushing river surrounded by these gorgeous trees and this lush landscape with a beautiful cotton field in the distance that they have to toil in with these other beautiful enslaved people that they are on this plantation with with whom they cannot get too close to without it being dangerous and they live here and Witnessed these powers while in this beautiful landscape Whether there is no escape so siren some new..

"Real in this story and in wealth in these these narratives that world of the supernatural world and the real world is terrible real world. The characters inhabit are almost one continuum. Well the ancestors are very real for me as robert jones junior whenever i get a feeling a gut feeling that something is not right or i get a gut feeling that something is right. Yes i can say that. That was just my own experiences. Speaking into me through me but on a more metaphysical level. I'd like to think that it is my ancestors getting me in protecting me. And so when. I was writing the profits. The anti-israel voice wasn't there in the beginning but came to me in a dream. And so when i heard this voice say to me or this person say to me in the dream you do not yet know us and woke up in the middle of the night to write that down and then woke up the next morning to see what i scribbled down on a piece of paper in dark and realized that this was a direct address and apps. The ancestors were saying that they needed to have a part in this story at listened and i figured out a way to ensure that their voices were weaving in and out talking. Not just to me not just to the characters in the book but also to the reader to say this is how it was to you how it ought to be but let me give you the cautionary tale and so yeah. They play a crucial role in this book. And and i quite liked the way they we've themselves in and out and how they reveal themselves in the beginning because talks about you know the lead time it took to write this book and a number of roadblocks along the way intended the subject matter. You want me to talk about. And the beja theme of this story is black winners and its existence in the past and in this instance in antebellum america and again something that is not particularly widely discussed or reading. So i wanted to talk about festival. Your your i guess initial researches into into the subject matter. Well it's so interesting new. Bring this up because just earlier today on twitter. I was having a bit of a debate with someone from nigeria about wariness and his reluctance to accept black. Queer people in nigeria. Because he didn't like the name. He didn't like the fact that they were called. Lgbtq and that if you could just call it another name maybe then we can think about your humanity and my point was well. What does it matter. I'm human and i'm here irrespective of what i call myself. You should be respecting my humanity period. The end there's no argument to be had but he didn't quite understand and he thought well the the labels make us think of american colonialism in western colonialism. And i thought well christianity is not an artifact of of nigeria and you accept that readily wise. This different goals were the fears. I had in writing. This book is that i would encounter those individuals who would reject holy the idea that blackness inquire nurse are not incompatible and that black queer people whether we had a word to describe them or not have existed as long as human beings have existed and so i had to do a ton of research because i could not find in the classical canon any examples other than those that presented black weirdness some sort of active depravity..

A scratching noise was coming from somewhere. You hear that. As i asked here what isaiah was still the scratching it stopped. He laid his head back down on the ground. Samuel moved again as though preparing to stand. Wait isaiah whispered. Samuel sucks his teeth but returned to his position lying excise area just as he got comfortable. The scratching noise returned. He didn't hear it but isaiah looked into direction. It was coming from close to the horse pens. Something took shape there. It was first a tiny point like a star and then it spread until it was the night he was brought to the plantation. Twenty of them maybe more piled into a wagon drawn by horses all of them chained together at the ankles and the wrists with movement labored and unified. Some of them were iron helmets that covered their entire heads. Turn their voices into echoes and their breathing into rattles. The oversize contraptions rested on their collar. Bones leaving behind gashes. That bled down to their navels and made them woozy. Everyone was naked. They traveled over bumpy dusty trails for what to ahah seemed the lifetime the sun burning their fleshing day and mosquitoes tearing it up at night still. They were thankful for the torrential showers when those without helmets could drink at their leisure rather than at the gunman's when they finally reached empty which was what in the quiet places. people called the halifax plantation. And for good reason he couldn't make out anything except a dim light coming from the big house. And then they were pulled one by one from the wagon each of them stumbling because none of them could feel their legs for some. The weight of the helmet made it impossible to stand others had the burden of being held down by the corpse. They were chained to isaiah who was. Just a child. Didn't even know enough to consider the man who lifted him up and carried him even though his own legs were about to give. I got you a little one. The man said his voice labored and dry.

Living and dead alike they were lying on the ground near the cotton field. He was hungry and thirsty and the first to sit up that was when he saw them. A group of people holding pales marching up. The path headed right for them somewhere as young as they came with water and food well at as close to food as he was liable to get pig parts that were seasoned enough to cover up the acrid taste and alleviate gagging a boy with a ladle approached him he moved the ladle toward isaiah's face isaiah part of his lips closed eyes. He groped as warm sweet water leaked from the corners of his mouth. When he was done he looked at the boy. The son made him squint so that at first he can only see the boys outline the boy move the little blocking the sun. He looked down at isaiah with big skeptical eyes and chin too proud for anyone to have under those conditions. Some more the boy called samuel asked his as was no longer thirsty but nodded. Anyway when the darkness returned to itself touched his own body to make sure he wasn't a child anymore he was himself. He was sure but what had just come to him from pinpoint in the dark. Prove that time could go missing. Whenever and wherever it pleased and couldn't yet figure out a way to retrieve it couldn't be certain but the remembrance showed itself reminded him that he and samuel were about the same age sixteen or seventeen now if every four seasons properly counted nearly twenty years old now and so much had remained unspoken between them to leave it in the silence was the only way it could be and not break a spirit in half working eating sleeping playing fucking on purpose for survival. Everything that was learned had to be transmitted by circling the thing rather than uncovering it. Who after all was foolish enough to show wounds to folks who wanted to stick their mouth suck fingers into them. The quiet was mutual. Not so much agreed upon as inherited safe but containing the ability to cause great destruction. They're lying in the dark isaiah exposed to closely to a living dream. Heard it speak. You ever wonder where your man as they say. He then realized it was his own voice but he didn't remember speak. It was as though another voice one that sounded like his had escaped his throat his but not his as ahah post then. He moved over closer to samuel. He felt his way around. Samuel's body is settled his hand on samuels belly. I mean what i mean is i say you spent then try to grab after leave. Your mouth asked samuel. Isaiah was confused. I want to say that it came up by itself. Yeah samuel said groening. I never hear a voice and you think is not yours but it is or it kind of is you ever see your life outside you know. I can't explain said isaiah thought that maybe this was the weightlessness that he saw. Take hold of a person because the plantation could do that. Make the mind retreat so that it could protect the body from what it was forced to do it leave the mouth babbling to calm himself. He rubbed samuel stomach. The motion load. Both of them is area. Had started to blink slower and slower. He was almost asleep when his mouth came up. Maybe a pc you somewhere inside. Maybe your blood. Maybe your guts to face. Isaiah said surprised. His words rushing forth is they had been dammed up. Maybe when you look in the river faces which you see there was silence and then samuel inhaled suddenly in quickly maybe new way to avenue samuel finally replied maybe a way to feel though as ahah blurred hung said maybe away no not not. You never mind samuel said. Let's go to the river. Isaiah intended to stand but his body preferred lying there. With samuel's i know my man. Emma pappy but all i remember is they're crying basis. Someone take me from them and they stand there watching me as the whole sky opened up on i reach my hand out but they only give father and follow way until all i hear is screams. Nothing my hands reach out grabbing both of them stunned by this. As by the recollection and samuel by hearing it but neither of them moved. They were quiet for a moment. Then samuel turn to isaiah you lose. Your pappy may carry here as i said as he heard his history being recounted by his voice. Not my pappy. But somebody who said he knew my name never told me though just then isaiah so his own hand reaching out in the darkness of the barn small frantic just like that day. He thought that perhaps he was reaching not just for his man happy but also for all those faded peoples who stood behind them whose names to were lost forever and whose blood nervous the ground and haunted it who screens. Sunlight whispers now whispers. That will.

"And cavs into places no mandate to after a moment more of struggle isaiah surrendered samuel relented. They turned on that backs. So the moon through an opening in the roof its pale light. Shut down on them. Their bare chests heaved and they pant it audibly. Isaiah raised a hand up toward the opening to see if he could block out the light with his palm. It was a soft glow in the spaces between his fingers. One of us gotta get to fix that roof. He said don't think of work now. Let yourself be samuel. Said a little more harshly than he intended looked at samuel. He examined his profile the way his thick lips protrude from his face less so his broad nose his hair twisted and turned any which way he looked. Down at samuel's sweaty chest. The moonlight turned his dark skin to glitter and was lulled by. Its rhythm samuel. Turn to look at isaiah. Met his gentle stare with its own. Version isaiah smiled. He liked the way. Samuel breathe with his mouth open. Lower lip twisted slightly in tongue placed just inside the cheek expression of someone up to mischief touched. Samuels arm you tired. Isaiah asked him should be but as a scoot it over until their bodies touched the spot where their shoulders met moist their feet. Roped samuel didn't know why but he began to tremble which made him angry because it made him feel exposed. Isaiah didn't see the anger. Instead he saw beckoning. He rose to move on top of samuel. Who flinched a bit before relaxing as. As lead his tongue slowly and gently over samuel's nipple which came to life in his mouth both of them. It was different from the i kissed. How many seasons ago was that now. Sixteen or more. It was easier to count those than the moons. Times didn't show up because they could be temperamental remembered that it was when the apples had been fuller and redder than they had ever been before or since where they stumble and shame had kept them from looking teach others is now as they moved in close and let his lips linger on. Samuels samuel coiled. Only a little. His uncertainty found cover beneath repetition. The struggle the head once made him want to choke is much. Hisself was in remission there were only traces of it now insignificant battles in the far corners of his is maybe a smidgen at the back of his throat but it was overcome by other things. They didn't give each other chance to fully disrobe as his pants down around his knees. Samuels dangling from an ankle impatient. Thrusting into each other in a haystack. The moonlight shining.

"Statues and other types of memorializing served to normalize and valorize this cruel and and racist past and and sanitized there's a very real violence and death that that it cost and well, you know, there's the group you mentioned the United Daughters of the Confederacy is a group. I knew very little about I mean it probably seen their name passing but it hadn't really registered. Just how active they were. This is a group of kind of a women's auxiliary group that formed really in the it was not right after the Civil War but a few days after in the 1890s and into the early decades really between 18 ninety and and World War one that was a very powerful group. There was over a hundred thousand women involved as Peak they were mostly from wage be families connected to the Confederacy kind of too, you know old old families that have supported the Confederacy and their mission really was to make sure the Confederacy wasn't forgot and yep. Though the war had been lost to erect these monuments and they talked about them very much as educational things for children, right? So that way that that they was for the Next Generation. They were worried that the ideals of the Confederacy would be lost. But many of these same women right? I mean there were they were the same women who were also a very active in church has thumb all across the South and and you can see them picking up Church practices and adapting them for this kind of pro-confederate educational system. And one of the most striking ones that I came across was that they actually developed a catechism. Yeah for for children. And so, you know, what what it did is and for those who you know may not be familiar catechism essentially off a kind of educational tool used for children, usually for confirmation services and it basically teaches you the facts right about the faith and so, you know, and it's a kind of wrote is a question and answer. Structure who is God and then there's Orthodox answer that that the child is supposed to memorize and and say back. So the teacher would ask the question the pupils kind of recite in unison off your back to the teacher and this is kind of how it was kind of wrote method of education. And so they developed, you know, a a Confederate catechism and and instead of who is God who is Jesus, you know who created the Earth those kinds of questions and the catechism it was what was the cause of the Confederacy and how were slaves treated and those kinds of questions and you know, the answers were wrong, you know the north not being willing to let the the southern states have the right of self-determination and how we're sleeves traded the children were memorized. They were treated well and you know, we're happy to work for them stirs and like these kinds of things and and you know those sound kind of bizarre in tandem, but if you can imagine also put that put them into the lived World in which they were created and what you suck. I said what was not an uncommon thing would be for a kid to go to their they and they had used chapters. The the United Daughters of the Confederacy had bought a used chapters. And so they would it wouldn't be uncommon for those kids to go up to go to Saturday morning meeting and be instructed in this Confederate catechism and then show up for Sunday school the next day at their church and perhaps even have the same teacher teaching them the Christian catechism..

"Inside the Methodist denomination, you know in the Episcopal Church is also interesting again. It's I think often thought of as you know, kind of more liberal group, but it's worth remembering that Robert really Jefferson Davis. These are all episcopalians, you know, and some of the churches in the South, you know in Richmond, for example, the you know, the the headquarters of the Confederacy there's an Episcopal Church there that was the home Church of Davis and Lee that actually installed stained glass windows depicting Lee and Jackson and David Moss as essentially as Christian Saints literally in in the in the stained glass windows. So this goes very very deep. Not just among Babs and white Catholics just one example, they're the boss the the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Archdiocese of New York actually did the same a very similar thing to the Methodist and that is that if you were black and Catholic in New York And again, this is not in the South. It's it's a very urban center of the north east and and you wanted to go to Catholic School you were certainly able to but it was they basically designated one Parish Saint Mark's parish as the school for the segregated in all African Americans no matter where they were in the city if you wanted to go to Catholic school, that's where you went down and they were also encouraged to go to that Catholic parish for for worship services and well into the twentieth century African Americans were required to sit in the back and to wait until after all the white members of the church had received the Eucharist before they could receive the Eucharist. So these lines of segregation and hierarchy racial hierarchy, you know, we're really dominant Monday through all of our history. I mean, it is really, you know, you can't really read the history straight without realizing this that's kind of white supremacist assumptions, like running all the way through it. Mhm. Yeah. Yep. And and one of the things you're booked also highlights is the way in which it is not confined to the South as you mentioned with that example in in New York. It's not these these prejudices this this type of racism is present in the midwest in the north. It is absolutely not confined to the South. I'm from Indiana. There were Sundown towns in Indiana. Oh, right. Yeah. There are there are all sorts of examples of this and your book is provides an ample number of them. One of the other things that your book highlights is the ways in which teachings about the Lost Cause and the South as well as Confederate Monument building by groups such as the United Daughters of the Confederacy were intertwined with religious teaching and became part of the cultural fabric of white community and we continue to reckon with these monuments to the Confederacy even now following the protests after the murder of George Floyd and Brianna Taylor and others. How did the name?.

The legacy of white supremacy and American Christianity Robert. Welcome to the show. Thanks. Glad to be here really glad we're able to talk about your book. It's it's very important for understanding our current moment as well as our history and I I have to say up top. I recognized the reality of two white men talking about race and but however, I I think that your book is one of many that's out right now that this moment needs an order for white populations home including white churches to begin having conversations about race and Reckoning with the legacy of white supremacy. Your book is actually a combination of personal experience Factory in sociological data, but I want to start with your personal experience and how that informed your own process of Reckoning with white supremacy. What began that process for you right? Well, Um, you know, I I think it's it's really been a lifelong, you know process to be honest. So I I grew up in Mississippi for the most part as long other Baptist so very much inside, you know, the kind of the largest Protestant denomination and inside that Evangelical world. And you know, I was like it'd also who was there, you know, every time the door was open. I mean, I I would no kidding it sometimes you know, like many people in who were active and Evangelical churches. Yeah. I was there maybe four or five times a week wage depending on what was going on all the way through was a member of the youth group and you know went to a Southern Baptist College. I have a master of divinity degree from a southern baptist Seminary so, you know very much in a side that world and you know, I think the first crack that I kind of identified the book for me and that kind of edifice of innocence is maybe one way to think about it. Well, Began to get a more critical look at our own history and Heritage was when I was sitting in a Baptist history class in seminary. I was in my early twenties and heard for the first time the origin story of the Southern Baptist convention my home denomination. And you know that is that in 1845..
