Listen to this episode about an NAACP leader's ideas on Christianity and social justice and the need to connect both.

If Jesus were alive today, would he be an activist? In our seventh episode of Jesus' Favorite Podcast, we pose this question to Alexia Dukes, an activist who has experience with cultural diversity training and nonprofit activism work.

Alexia currently serves as the President of the Youth and College Division of the St. Louis County National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). She was also Miss NAACP 2018-2019, and she graduated in 2022 from Harris-Stowe State University, where she studied psychology.

Our host, Javi Zubizarreta, sat down with Alexia to learn about her story and her understanding and experience with Jesus, as well as her work with the NAACP. Listen to the full episode here or wherever you listen to podcasts.
