S3 E4: Feminism in Black and White

August 22, 2018

The struggles against sexism and racism come together in the bodies, and the lives, of black women. Co-hosts Celeste Headlee and John Biewen look at the intersections between male dominance and white supremacy in the United States, and the movements to overcome them, from the 1800s through the 2016 presidential election. Guests include scholars Glenda Gilmore, Ashley Farmer, and Danielle McGuire.

Music by Alex Weston, and by Evgueni and Sacha Galperine. Music and production help from Joe Augustine at Narrative Music.

    Resentmentism is the useful umbrella term under which bogus terms such as sexism and racism sit. The point of broadcasts such as this is to heat up the resentments present in nearly all listeners, in order to promote widespread unforgiving anger.
