Content is solid

The content is solid, and the topic extremely important and interesting. However, the lecture would be so much better without the constant insertion of the word. “Right” it’s equivalent to a teenager constantly saying the word like it’s far more interesting without the constant insertion, which is distracting a bibliography would be very useful as well. very interesting topic nonetheless.

Loved Mamie Till Mobley - Remembering Emmett Till

Excellent review of Mamie Till Mobley - Remembering Emmett Till! Great behind the scenes stories.

Would love more balanced selection of lectures

Would be fascinating to hear lectures from all political spectrums rather than just one.
