Thank you Jamelle & Rebecca

I was very reluctant to subscribe to Slate+ but did it for the History of Slavery podcast - which was excellent. The Reconstruction podcast is just as impressive so far. Rebecca and Jamelle choose a particularly lively representative anecdote or two and dig in from there, interviewing scholars (real ones) and reporting on scholarly books. The result is entertaining without being dumbed down. I appreciate these hosts - thank you so much for your work. Jamelle has also been writing about DuBois’ Black Reconstruction and you can find that writing online - I agree with him that it’s one of the most important books written about America - that book (alongside CLR James’ Black Jacobins) has helped me understand the contemporary world more than any other. Keep up the good work, Rebecca and Jamelle!

I wait for it every week

I’m learning so much about a subject that was barely taught in school.
