Braver Angels Event with Coleman Hughes, Rakim Brooks and John Wood Jr. (Bonus Episode)
30 July 2021
Today’s episode is actually a recording of an event I did a few weeks ago for the organization Braver Angels. The mission of Braver Angels is to depolarise our politics by setting up dialogues between people who disagree on stuff. In that spirit, they set up this conversation between myself and Rakim Brooks, who is the Senior Campaign Strategist and Systemic Equality Campaign Manager for the ACLU. This was moderated by my friend John Wood Jr, a great Writer and National Leader for Braver Angels. We talk about Critical Race Theory, Group Psychology, and Tribalism. The role history should play in our current political discourse, and we feel lots of questions from the audience. There were some interesting disagreements between me and Rakim and also many points of agreement. I hope you all enjoy this.
