On March 28th, Bishop James D. Robinson of South Philadelphia’s Yesha Ministries, which is located on 23rd & Snyder Ave, will host a press conference to announce the formation of The Brotherly Love Project. The Bishop’s new community-focused and media-integrated-venture is the result of a controversial interaction with Philadelphia police officers on January 3rd of 2019. On that day, Bishop Robinson saw his son had been pulled over by two white female cops at Broad and Christian Streets. At his South Philadelphia studio, Bishop Robinson sat down with me to talk about the January encounter with police, his project’s forthcoming launch, the need to address racism head on, police officers not knowing the law, how President Trump embodies the heart of the nation, whether black city officials make life better for black people, and the intended outcomes of the Brotherly Love Project.
