“I Am Still Called by the God I Serve to Walk This Out”

At The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates talks with Lucia McBath, mother of teenager Jordan Davis who was killed in Florida by Michael Dunn. The murder charge against Dunn ended in a hung jury. “Forgiving Michael Dunn doesn’t negate what I’m feeling and my anger,” McBath told Coates. “And I am allowed to feel that way. But more than that I have a responsibility to God to walk the path He’s laid. In spite of my anger, and my fear that we won’t get the verdict that we want, I am still called by the God I serve to walk this out.”
