    When We Fight featuring Alicia Garza

    2020 isn’t just the year of COVID. It’s a year of crossroads. And there is no turning back now amid this historic social justice movement, with millions taking their rallying cries to the streets *during a pandemic*


    On this week’s episode, we are joined by one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, Alicia Garza to discuss her new book, ”The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart.” Garza drops gems, rubies and pearls about the history of the Black Lives Matter movement and explains the importance of voting in this upcoming election.

    Act Too featuring Tarana Burke

    Act Too featuring Tarana Burke

    This year, a confluence of social catastrophes in America has shed light on longstanding, life-altering power imbalances. The coronavirus pandemic, protests against police violence and numerous high-profile incidents involving sexual and domestic violence have all revealed that suffering is not shared equally. Even during times of universal crisis, there are always groups who fare better than others by exploiting their privilege. 


    Tarana Burke, founder of the Me Too movement, has spent decades dismantling these kinds of power structures. Burke is the brilliant mind behind the modern movement against sexual violence and abuse, which was founded in 2006. Today she is ushering the movement into its next phase. Her new platform, called “Act Too,” is designed to give users tools to combat abuse and to ensure that marginalized voices have a stake in how the movement proceeds. With Me Too entering its “second act,” Burke joined “And THAT’S That!” to discuss ways the pandemic is endangering victims of assault.


    This episode is good for the soul and will leave you with some powerful action items. Check it!

    The Fight To #ENDSARS featuring Osai Ojigho

    The Fight To #ENDSARS featuring Osai Ojigho

    While Americans are calling to defund the police in the United States, Nigerians are demanding an end to police corruption and violence through the global hashtag #ENDSARS. For nearly two weeks, protesters in the West African country have taken to the streets to fight for an end to the federal police force Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) after a video emerged of officers allegedly killing a man. Though the global attention to this issue is new, Amnesty International Country Director Osai Ojigho, our guest this episode, tells us that the call to end SARS has been going on for about five years. 


    Elsewhere in the episode we discuss the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, the unimpeachable legacy of Lebron James after the Lakers championship run in the NBA bubble, the return of Supermarket Sweep, and much more.

    Lesson Learn'd featuring Jamaal Bowman

    Lesson Learn'd featuring Jamaal Bowman

    For our first episode, we knew we had to welcome a guest who could match our steez ― someone proudly, loudly and unquestionably Black, unbothered by his haters and with an uncommon amount of energy. We wanted someone whose spirit would help set the tone for the types of wide-ranging convos we’ll be having with y’all each week. Enter Jamaal Bowman from New York, a rising star of the Democratic Party, a former school principal and ― we should say ― a certified rhyme-spitter.


    Bowman, a first-time candidate for Congress and a progressive, rode a wide wave of multiracial support to defeat his opponent, 16-term incumbent Eliot Engel, to become the Democrats’ pick to represent New York’s 16th District. And he did it all in true style and slight flex. Bowman’s got that Baldwin-like fire inside him, and he chops it up with us to break down power, the pandemic and Raekwon’s classic album “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.”


    We also discuss the latest updates in the Breonna Taylor case, the presidential debate shitshow, Wendy verzuz Nene and how Hippolyta teaches us all how to truly support Black women. Check it!


    “And THAT’S That!” is produced and edited by Izzy Best, Nick Offenberg, Sara Patterson, and Becca DeGregorio. If you have a question or a comment about the show or a suggestion for an episode, email us at andthatsthat@huffpost.com
