41 - Putting the Revolution Back In Racial Reconciliation (feat. Austin Channing Brown)
We’re taking a break from guest hosts this week (a break from a break? I don’t know, roll with me) to talk with Austin Channing Brown. Austin’s new book I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness is phenomenal, and we talk about a lot of the same topics here: what does ‘racial reconciliation’ really mean? What can we learn from talking honestly about our past? What’s the difference between individual bigotry and institutional racism? Can niceness be harmful? Why did Austin’s parents name her Austin? We talk about all of this and more.
