Truly Powerful!

Nicole Hannah-Jones’ voice is captivating and her storytelling is masterful and authentic. This is by far the best and most honest retelling of the US’s horrific capitalistic beginning. Her weaving of current day ideas/events/cultural-issues with the past brings a new level of understanding that is tangible and intelligent. Her choice of music and sound is haunting and places you in her immediate bubble. While the subject matter is difficult to hear, I am hungry to learn more from her perspective.

This podcast is amazing.
