Sean and Peniel discuss the Black Lives Matter movement, the Obama presidency — and important differences between the two — as well as the dangers of American exceptionalism and the importance of maintaining hope in the ongoing fight for racial justice.

This is a fantastic conversation and interview with Peniel Joseph. Incredibly informative and salient in understanding our current struggle and discourse of politics, race, and class in America.
