In the first half of today's episode, we go over some of the major news stories of the week and give some insight and context to the headlines you may have seen. We break down some of the more troubling events and provide a reaction to the stories.
In the second part of the show, we explain how we--as a show and as a community--process the trauma that we see in the media against Black and Brown bodies. We discuss how it feels to be a second-class citizen in this country. Our Way Black History Fact tells the origin story of R&B music.
