Click below to listen to the interview.
Scandalous new allegations about R&B superstar R. Kelly regarding 25 years of abuse and statutory rape have exploded again recently in a six-part Lifetime docu-series entitled Surviving R. Kelly. Through an attorney, the embattled singer has denied the allegations against him.
Our podcast guest is Antoine Williams, an elder at Atlanta’s Blueprint Church, who is a husband and father, as well as a fine-art photographer. Antoine offers some fascinating insights about why some members of the black community protect known abusers, as well as how God’s people can take steps to break the cycle of abuse and start multiplying justice in their communities.
You can meet Antoine via Instagram here. We held our conversation with him at New Creation Arts, a non-profit gallery and studio space designed to serve local artists in Marietta, Georgia.
