Robin DiAngelo and Resmaa Menakem
The show we released with Minneapolis-based trauma specialist Resmaa Menakem in the weeks after George Floyd’s killing has become one of our most popular episodes, and has touched listeners and galvanized personal searching. So we said yes when Resmaa proposed that he join On Being again, this time together with Robin DiAngelo. She is perhaps the foremost voice in our civilizational grappling with whiteness; her book, White Fragility, is one of the bestselling books in the U.S. right now. Hearing the two of them together is electric — the deepest of dives into the calling of our lifetimes.
