In this heartfelt interview, our very own Tiffany Taylor Smith, Assistant Vice President in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion here at UD, takes us through her rich understanding of faith and culture, specifically through the lens of her own work working for racial justice and reconciliation. Highlighting her great hope in the ability of young people today to strive for and initiate change, Tiffany walks us through a broad understanding of faith and of culture, where culture can have a distinct flavor even within a single family, and where faith is an openness towards the radical truth that there is a universe outside of ourselves and that, much as we might like to think otherwise, we are not in control of everything. There is a God who sees, directs, and saves, and He can often inspire us to work for the very kind of racial justice that Tiffany works towards each day.
