Pressing Pause: Our Body Politic is on hiatus.     |     Click here to learn more.    

This week on Our Body Politic, I looked back on the 2016-2017 Dakota Access Pipeline protests with investigative journalist Jenni Monet to discuss activism among indegeonous peoples in America and across the globe. I also spoke with MacArthur Grant Award winner, Harvard professor and author Tiya Miles about one family heirloom from the enslavement period that remarkably stood the test of time. Then in our weekly segment “Sippin’ the Political Tea” I was joined by Christina Greer, political scientist and Associate Professor at Fordham University and Kimberly St. Julian-Varnon, a Ph.D. student in History at the University of Pennsylvania, as we examined the discrimination and other barriers international students and non-white Ukrainanians are facing in result of Putin’s invasion.
