    S5 Ep. 2 - The Imprisoned Black Radical Tradition (feat. Dr. Rachel McMillian)

    S5 Ep. 2 - The Imprisoned Black Radical Tradition (feat. Dr. Rachel McMillian)

    In this episode, Dr. Ma'asehyahu Isra-Ul sits down with Dr. Rachel McMillian to discuss her work in Black education and critical prison studies. In this dialogue they discuss their personal experiences with those in prison and address a broken criminal system of punishment that leads to recidivism and not progressive change. It is important to remember those who are trapped behind bars and to advocate for the acknowledgement of their humanity in a society that has long discounted them as positive members. This is not an episode to take lightly.

    S5 Ep. 1 - The Sarah Rector Story w/ Dr. Lauren Henley

    In this first episode of the season, Dr. Ma'asehyahu Isra-Ul sits down with Dr. Lauren Henley at the University of Richmond to discuss the little known but highly interesting story of Sarah Rector. Dubbed "The Richest Black Girl in America", Rector's story is one of blessing, fear, courage and resilience. Rector was the daughter of Black farmers whose ancestors had been enslaved by the Creek tribe in Oklahoma. Because of this, the family was allotted free land by the federal government as a form of reparations. Everything changed in 1913, when land began gushing oil and Rector became the first youngest Black millionaire in American history.
