For this 3rd episode of Visiting Church, Professor Rhonda Ragsdale continues with the ideas of self-governance and community with evangelist, storyteller, writer, and poet Myrna Roberts. Roberts speaks of community concepts as a scholar of communication, but she also brings a black towns perspective. Her family members were established residents of Tatums, Oklahoma, and she spent many weekends and summers enjoying the physical and psychological refuge of the historically black town.

* This episode begins to explore the ideas of a Proverbs 31 community and the correlations with historically black towns.
