About Truth in Between
Truth in Between started between a mother and son. Concerned about the lack of critical thinking in a world dominated by short social media threads and silos, I gave my son a challenge to read an article a day from different perspectives. The goal was to learn how to navigate the messy middle with compassion, and to communicate and articulate the truth in between.
What started as a family mission soon turned into an effort to connect those of different ideologies over letters. It was in pursuing this mission that we met W.F. Twyman, Jr. What started as a conversation on diversity training, turned into a series of letters on how we talk about race in America. We are currently working to turn these letters into a book, To The Coming of a Better Time.
Welcome to the Truth in Between and our navigation of the messy middle. It’s an uncomfortable place, but we believe that it’s the only way to move forward, repair divisions and to build a new more unified American identity.
