Creative Tension gives a voice to people and periods of struggle, forgotten by history. Rev. Elliott Robinson, JD, MDiv guides listeners on the first stop on this journey, “The Jim Crow Years.” With a mixture of interviews, archival audio and group discussions, Creative Tension takes an in-depth look into the messiness of American History and the search for social justice. Creative Tension is made possible thru the support of the John Hope Franklin Research Center for African and African American History and Culture at Duke University and their Behind the Veil Oral History Project.

Customer Reviews

Gone but not forgotten learning about African American History

This podcast needs to be a mandatory lesson to those who question the way African Americans have been treated in this country throughout history. Rev. Robinson brings a much-needed message of truth and understanding to how we can learn from our past in order to improve our future. I most highly recommend this podcast and look forward to tuning in again and again in order to continue to Create Tention.

Jim Crow Monuments

The first episode in this podcast is a great explanation of the role of official, legal commemoration in reconstructing and maintaining white supremacy after the civil war.

An incredible guide through the past

Creative Tension offers an engaging walk through the Jim Crow past to dissect the dialogue happening today. The first two episodes offer incredible context into the new narrative and justification for the Confederacy and its monuments. While the voices and explanations can be chilling, I now have an even greater understanding of the nuanced and subtle bigotry that still exists. My daughters will benefit from this and I encourage others to share with their children, too. If this is just the beginning, I can wait for what topics Rev Elliott will tackle next.
