    The Legacy of Anita Hill from Talk Easy

    Sharing an episode of another Pushkin podcast: Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso. Talk Easy is a different kind of interview show, where guests slow down and share how they arrived at the place they're at today—and where they hope to go tomorrow. You'll hear dialogues driven by compassion with artists, activists, and politicians. In this episode, Sam sits with author, lawyer, and podcast host Anita Hill. Anita replays the phone call she received from President Biden in 2019, the weight of her decision to speak out against Clarence Thomas, the significance of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's Supreme Court nomination, her mother's enduring influence, and a poem by Pauli Murray that keeps the song of hope alive in her.
