NEW EPISODE EVERY THURSDAY
Medical Racism, Anti-Vax Sentiment and The Other Virus
On this episode of democracy-ish, Danielle is on vacation and Toure is joined by friend of the show Dr. Christina Greer, head of the political science department at Fordham University at Lincoln Center and co-host of the podcast What’s In It for Us as well as FAQ NYC.
The one-year anniversary of lockdown-level pandemic is upon us, and there’s finally glimmers of hope as vaccines are being administered across the country. But a significant portion of Black Americans say they’re not planning to take it.
Medical racism is all too real, but the COVID vaccine is a must, especially for communities of color. Why is vaccine hesitancy so widespread and how can we address it?
White supremacist violence is on the rise. How does this other virus spread and what needs to change to stop it?
I am so grateful for this podcast. It speaks to who I am as a voter and an American. Please keep up the great work.
I just found out about this podcast and I'm glad its here because it's good for younger black people to have a voice in politics 😁
The passion of Danielle and optimism of Touré keep me listening.
Super Exciting Show
Absolutely a great show. Both so smart and sassy, impressive minds. Saying lots of things I have thought of but even more I didn’t know about.
