In brief: Austin Channing Brown is my new favorite voice/author. I’m beyond excited to bring you a full episode of her being her straight forward, funny, charming self. This conversation is not 101-level racial justice and white listeners will be uncomfortable throughout. I encourage my white listeners to stay in that discomfort as a first step to committing to doing the work of dismantling the white supremacist systems our country was built on and that continue to wreak havoc in the lives of so many.
I can’t begin to recommend Austin’s book highly enough. Her wordsmithing pairs with her succinct honesty to give readers of all backgrounds so much to think about and ways to think differently about their lives.
