Palpable Pain

Maria and Julio process this historic moment in the fight for racial justice and defending Black lives with Julieta Martinelli, Futuro Media producer who is on the ground covering the ongoing protests in Atlanta. Then, they dive into conversation with Danielle Moodie, co-host of the podcast Democracy-ish and host of the radio show WokeAF, to make sense of this year so far and what it all means for the 2020 presidential election. ITT Staff Picks: - By Michael Harriot in The Root: A timeline of events to contextualize the anger, frustration and desperation that have led to demonstrations and uprisings across the country. - "To be black and conscious of anti-black racism is to stare into the mirror of your own extinction," Ibram X. Kendi writes for The Atlantic. - In a Medium piece Danielle Moodie writes, "From slavery to the Jim Crow South to this week’s incident in Central Park, all a White woman has ever had to do in America is lie about the threat of a Black man in order to incite White men wielding badges (or not) to come running to their aid with guns, ropes, torches, and chains at the ready."
