A short series of the Dissidents Podcast, no. 1
Appears in this episode
This is Letters in Black & White, a short series of the Dissidents Podcast, introducing ideas from the forthcoming book, Letters in Black and White: A New Correspondence on Race in America.
The following is the first in the series of podcast conversations with interesting people on the topic of race in America. Today's guest is Sahil Handa, a young graduate of Harvard College who has written stirring essays about the generation gap between the Old and the Young, Coleman Hughes, James Baldwin and the infamous book Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge. Sahil brings the fresh perspective of an outsider to questions of the color line today. A writer, a philosopher, a Renaissance Man -- welcome to a non-conformist, Sahil Handa, who rejects the idea that a person's skin color ought to determine one's views.
