This week, host Mungi Ngomane is joined by Courtney Martin, Activist, Feminist, Author, Entrepreneur, and Journalist. Her book, Learning in Public: Lessons for a Racially-Divided America From my Daughter's School provides lessons that help white parents wondering if it's too early to speak to their young kids about racism—spoiler: it's not. Courtney is also the visionary behind the Substack newsletter, called Examined Family, and she co-founded the Solutions Journalism Network, FRESH Speakers, and the Bay Area chapter of Integrated Schools. Courtney is the Storyteller-in-Residence at The Holding Co, a lab to redesign care for the 21st century. Her work appears frequently in The New York Times and The Washington Post, and you can find her appearances on the TODAY Show, Good Morning America, MSNBC, and The O’Reilly Factor. Courtney also speaks widely at conferences and colleges.
In this episode, Courtney shares how she lives out her activism creatively in her daily life, with information that people wishing to be allies can use, her newsletter, Examined Family, and an article she wrote called, The Reductive Seduction of Other People's Problems, that Mungi highly recommends.
