All Rev'd UpAll Rev'd Up

All Rev’d Up explores where faith intersects politics and culture. Rev. Irene Monroe and Rev. Emmett G. Price III come from different black faith perspectives, they’re of different generations, they hail from different parts of the country, and they come together in this podcast to talk about faith in a different way. They don’t always agree, but they always hear each other out. Dive into conversations around race, faith, and this week’s headlines with the Revs every other Wednesday. When something happens in the world, you want their take on it. All Rev’d Up is produced by WGBH.

Conversation Groups

Disparity Trap: The Socially Conscious Board Game provides an easy way to have the hard conversations around race & privilege in America and how they impact society in systemically dominant (SD) and systemically non-dominant (SND) ways. The game play is like many of its kind, where your individual goal is to accrue as much wealth as possible. But where it differs is that you can have a team goal as well where you work with  your fellow players to dismantle the Disparity Traps seeking to keep everyone in poverty. Within this game you also step into someone else’s shoes; to experience the disparities within an identity different from your own. Throughout the game, the dice roll correlates your identity in the game to real life statistics.

So like life, the dice are in your hands, but the odds are not.

A documentary series resource produced by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for communities and congregations to facilitate conversation and engagement around the issues of race and racism.



The Centering the Silenced Summit featured 15 voices that have been historically marginalized and silenced. These humans answered one main question for us - what is the single greatest social or liberative challenge facing us, as Christians, at this time? During our chats, we spent some time breaking down their answer and looking at the critical and practical ways that the Church should respond.
