Christena Cleveland

“I’m only one degree, and if I want a three hundred and sixty degree view on Christ and this world, I need to be in a mutual relationship with other people who are different from me.”

+ Social psychologist Christena Cleveland reflects on sociological imagination, racial dynamics within in institutional settings, and the importance of mutual relationships to expand our perceptions.
