Episode details

Friends, I'm excited to bring you a throwback episode of The Breakdown that originally aired on August 12, 2022.

You know, it's really astonishing to me that in America, when we look at the top 50 most represented people with monuments, half of them were enslavers. It's unacceptable.

But what's the solution? Waiting for others to create monuments for us isn't going to cut it. We need to take action and build them ourselves. That's what I address in this episode - specifically, building monuments to honor the legacies of Malcolm X and Nat Turner.

Take a listen and let me know your thoughts.
