Critical, eye-opening learning for all Americans by one of the best journalists today

I’m a White guy, Irish-American. I’ve always tried to educate myself about the history and lived experience of my Black brothers and sisters, and other oppressed groups in our country, in order to inform and guide my social and political action.

Trymaine Lee has shown me how incredibly ignorant I have been. For example, his guest on the superb series he has recently hosted regarding reparations, “Uncounted Millions,” clearly explained the compelling necessity to correct the devastating impacts of slavery and ongoing discrimination and injustice. No other reporter or news analyst whom I have heard has come close to this depth, beyond sound bytes and opinion that is based only upon ignorance.

Anyone who wants to move beyond misperception, ignorance and fear to compassion, just action, restoration and healing should listen to Into America pronto.

Obsessed!

I’ve been evangelizing about this with my friends and family, as I did several other Into America series in the past. Lee is a brilliant historian and storyteller. And THIS is the story America has tried not to tell since the ink dried on the Emancipation Proclamation. Almost instantly, the state’s rights myth was formed, confederates were made into heroes and 40 acres and a mule was reversed by Lincoln’s successor, Trump’s fav president, Andrew Johnson. This podcast takes on a conversation most of America has wanted to avoid: the financial impact of slavery on the enslaved. It artfully uses little known American reparations- 1) those passed in DC in 1862 for white slave owners whose property had been liberated from bondage, and 2) and Redress for those families who were arrested and sent to Japanese internment camps simply because they were Japanese- in order to illustrate how long this struggle has been, how Black folks seem to be the only ones who can’t seem to get reparations and how impactful they would be if FINALLY implemented. I can’t say enough about this podcast! WHERE IS THE BOOK, TREMAINE?!?!

Tremendous Treasure

I am a 72 yr. Old white woman living in New England ( predominantly white) . I am so incredibly enriched by what Tremain is putting into our consciousness. I have learned so much listening to his programs. I cannot thank him enough for his tremendously important work. Reparations to the slave owners put me over the edge!
