Authors of B&H book on racism to be among Lifetime cable panelists

NEW YORK (BP)–Two Broadman & Holman authors will appear on a panel discussing race relations on the Lifetime women’s cable network Sunday, Oct. 24, to be moderated by ABC News’ Cokie Roberts and Deborah Roberts.
Slated among the panelists are Jo Kadlecek and Pamela A. Toussaint, two of the four authors of “I Call You Friend,” a book about race relations and cross-cultural relationships released earlier this year by Broadman & Holman, the trade publishing arm of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Kadlecek, Toussaint and the other two authors, Andrea Clark and Elvon Reed Borst, recount their lives — Kadlecek and Clark and white; Toussaint and Borst are black — and how they became friends in New York City.
The one-hour Lifetime panel discussion, “I’m Not a Racist But … Small Steps Toward Healing the Hate,” to be produced by ABC News, will be taped before a studio audience and aired at 10 p.m. Eastern Oct. 24.
It will follow a two-hour special presentation of the Lifetime series “Any Day Now.” The friendship of two of the series’ characters is threatened by a debate over racism after one of the women mistakes an African American woman in a restaurant for a waitress.
