FEATURING DR. MARGARET L. ANDERSEN – When Donald Trump won the Presidency in 2016, it was a political earthquake that shattered friendships, neighborly relationships, and even families. Much of the fissures have been around race given how Trump has based his ideology on white supremacist views. But Trump’s election was just the latest battlefront in the war over race and racism in America – a war that has never been properly reconciled. Our guest has written a powerful new book about the necessity of such a reconciliation needing to happen on a daily basis and in all aspects of our lives.
