EPISODE 38 – DR. KENYA MITCHELL, PART I

In our 38th episode, we chat with Dr. Kenya Mitchell, a Black writer, professor, and lead editor for the new Mother Mortality Project: an anthology of stories by Black, Brown and Indigenous women documenting discrimination in their pregnancies at the hands of the American health-care system. Dr. Mitchell and I discuss parenting in the time of the panorama, lessons on what white people still owe the movement to dismantle racism in the U.S. post-election, Bernie Sanders’ fault-lines with Black voters in particular, and why challenging the still-abundantly racist institution of Hollywood needs very much still be a thing. Our interview was cut short due to Dr. Mitchell’s prior obligations, but expect to find more of our dialogue on J.T. The L.A. Storyteller Podcast again soon.
