Larry Anderson & Wendell Berkland: An Unlikely Brotherhood

Larry Anderson and Wendell Berkland have a story of friendship that is deep and authentic. One is a black cop; the other is a white criminal defense attorney.  Together they have co-authored Unlikely Brotherhood.  The book jacket reads, "Coming from extreme opposite ends of a cultural divide in the whitest major city in America, one is sworn to put away the bad guys, while the other defends those charged with murder, rape, and other heinous crimes. Their combustible relationship erupts in bigotry and hatred in their first encounter. But years later, when the two foes collide again, an improbable friendship binds them together. Hearts are changed as the two men of faith declare their intent to love one another as brothers during a deadly and racially charged time on the streets of Portland, Oregon. Their decades-long relationship and willingness to share their story has inspired multitudes around the world to build authentic and loving relationships—no matter the color of their skin." In this podcast, Larry and Wendell describe what led them to learn how to love one another as brothers and to teach others to do the same.
