Interview with Prominent Political Activist Star Parker

Last week, I posted the interview with hit songwriter Keith Getty that I conducted while at the 2016 NRB Convention in Nashville, Tennessee. With my sister-in-law Mae as my videographer, I conducted 13 interviews during the five-day convention.

I was honored to be given 15 minutes to meet with Star Parker, a prominent political activist whose experiences as a welfare-dependent single mom led her to start CURE, an organization based in Washington D.C.

Check out my interview below, and visit UrbanCURE.org for more information. Star is also on Twitter and Facebook.

    I see the Willis family is coming back to tv. Will you update their blog?

    1. Hi Kim,

      I have given some thought to resuming my Willis blog, but I haven't made a decision yet. I don't want to neglect my other three blogs. :)

    Interesting to hear what people have to say, no jumping to conclusions before they speak for themselves. Thanks Ellie for interviewing Star.

    I liked what Star was talking about in this interview. She is talking about receiving Christ and the grace to I've a born again life in this world. What Star is doing is an inspiration. Thank-you Star and Ellie.

    Ellie do you do a blog for teen girls or even teen boys?
    Anyway teens could read all about being a new Christian couple.

    Because a President is pro - life does not mean he cares for the people in the projects. Also doesn't pro -life mean protecting the unborn and people that are living aswell but some of these candidates want to go and bomb innocent people in their own countries.
