Radio Free Acton: Ismael Hernandez on the recent ‘Detroit’ film and Jacqueline Isaacs on Libertarian Christians

This week on Radio Free Acton, we ask Ismael Hernandez, founder and president of the Freedom and Virtue Institute to give his opinions on the new film “Detroit,” depicting the 1967 12th Street Riots. Hernandez states for listeners how “it is important to know that every time you see a portrayal of a historical event, you need to be able to separate fact from narrative…we have to be able to understand that we are being sold a narrative with the images presented to us.” Following our interview with Hernandez, Jacqueline Isaacs answers our questions regarding her recent lecture given at Acton on Tap. Issacs explains why she believes many people have been told they cannot be both Christian and Libertarian and why they can.
