I was very honored to interview Elon Cook Lee.  My wife met Elon at a social justice conference in 2016, and from there a friendship was born.  Elon is impressive for many reasons.  After earning her masters from Brown University (Fellowship for the Study of the Public History of Slavery), Elon has been the program director for the Center of Reconciliation in Providence, RI.  Elon is a highly sought after speaker, and a "museum activist, public historian and race womanist".  

Elon deals with sensitive issues on race and slavery, but does so with compassion and a desire to bring healing.  I found our conversation very interesting and insightful.  I hope you enjoy.
