Frenemies: Berny Jacques and Geston Pierre
This podcast episode of Village SquareCast will drop on April 25th. You can find it wherever you get your podcasts or at https://podfollow.com/villagesquarecast/view.
Friends since middle school, Berny and Geston are both children of Haitian political refugees who fled political instability that put their families at risk. Despite their friendship and shared family immigration story, they have reached very different conclusions about politics and social issues in the United States today. What Berny and Geston have found in the space and differences between them, we believe, has a lot to teach the country they both dearly love. Berny is a Florida State representative, former assistant state attorney named among “30 under 30 rising stars in Florida politics.” Geston shares his message as a pastor and through song as part of the group Committed.
