7 & (replay) 10PM PT *new episode description*
This week on United Shades of America, you’re invited to the Black People Meeting! If you don't know what that is, The Black People Meeting is what happens when Black people get together and talk about race, racism, America, Trump, the TV show Power, Stacey Abrams 2020, and/or the latest Beyonce news, along with lots of other things. The key about these meetings is that when they occur Black people are talking the way we talk when there are no white people around, or at least no white people around who ask questions like, “HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT?” And on this week’s episode I am going to a bunch of Black People Meetings (ad one people of color meeting) in a place that has been designed and governed to have a lot of them, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Why Milwaukee? Because Milwaukee regularly comes up number one on lists of America’s most segregated cities.
