Segregation in Education is as bad as ever, and no end appears to be in sight. So what approaches might make a difference. What if Segregation, per se, wasn’t the problem? This week, educators speak out, and we visit an Afrocentric school in Brooklyn, where mindfulness and race are not a detail.

Fighting Fascism with Graphic Art? Far more than an escape, comics can pack a political punch, as does the work of this week’s guests. First up, Mohammad Saba’aneh describes how he transposes his lived experience to the page, exposing the cruelties of Israeli occupation and celebrating popular resistance as the path forward. Then, Nate Powell uses his craft to break down a specifically American phenomenon – the creep of fascist aesthetics into our police and fashion choices.
