69. Race Matters: Talking About Cornel West’s Classic

This April was the 30th anniversary of Race Matters by Cornel West. It’s a great book that I wanted to just sit on the couch to talk to y’all about!

Highly recommend reading through the book if you haven’t, it’s not as academic as it may seem.
