Not the Post-Racial Society We Thought it Would Be
1 day ago
Michele and Igor are joined by Kenneth B. Morris Jr., the great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass, great-great grandson of Booker T. Washington and Co-founder and President of the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives to discuss the bicentennial of Douglass' birth, his legacy as a radical abolitionist and civil rights leader and what young activists can learn from him today. Morris also speaks to Donald Trump’s ignition of racial tensions in the last year, shares what he believes American classrooms are getting wrong in their teaching of slavery and why Trump’s reaction to Colin Kaepernick mirrors the backlash Frederick Douglas received for his protest two hundred years ago.
