In this episode, I interview Elijah Manning. As Elijah became involved with social justice movements over the past few years, he realized he wanted to do more than just march in the streets.

People of color and women are completely entwined in our history, our literature, our science, our mathematics, so their contributions should be entwined in our curricula.
