Episode Info:

We’re back for Part 2 on Kamala Harris! Last time, we sat down with Ohio State Senator Tina Maharath and two college-graduated South Asian women involved in politics to better understand Kamala Harris's Indian-American identity with complexities around caste, power, and anti-blackness.

Today, we turn to Morgan Harper, a Black woman in politics and a former grassroots candidate for Congress, to help unpack Kamala’s Black identity. After attending Tufts (BA), Princeton (MA), and Stanford (JD), she spent three years at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) protecting consumers against predatory lenders and most recently at the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) which invests in communities that have been systematically under-resourced. Morgan evaluates the viewpoints of those who might feel conflicted voting for Kamala given her past as a prosecutor, and instills passion in our audience to become less complacent in civic engagement!
