Ep. 67: Slavery in Children’s Books, Gynnya McMillen, Kanye being Kanye, and Black Quarterbacks


Join us on this week’s episode as we discuss the depiction of slavery in a children’s book “A Birthday Cake for George Washington,” and responses to it being pulled. We also #SayHerName and discuss Gynnya McMillen, a 16-year-old girl who died in custody in a juvenile detention facility. We also discuss Kanye West’s twitter implosion and the significance of Black QBs in the NFL with Cam Newton heading to the Super Bowl.
