This week, I celebrated the show’s first anniversary with a conversation on Black homeownership and the importance of housing policy with 2021 MacArthur fellow and historian Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. The data scientists at the GenForward survey dissected the anxiety and optimism of millennials of color around their financial futures. I spoke with the three filmmakers behind “My Name is Pauli Murray,” a new Amazon documentary about the trail-blazing activist and lawyer. And on Sippin’ the Political Tea, contributors Karen Attiah of the Washington Post and Jamila Michener of Cornell University examined the U.S.’s responsibility towards Haitian migrants, and how the infrastructure debate on the Hill impacts women of color.
