Description

Black people, in particular Black women, are historically among the last to recover from economic downturns. Janelle Jones, the first Black woman to serve as the top economist for the Labor Department, has a policy approach she calls "Black Women Best" that she hopes will rectify that. What can be achieved over Republican objections remains to be seen.

This episode: congressional correspondent Susan Davis, White House correspondent Ayesha Rascoe, and political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben.
