This week I talked to the fiercely talented and intelligent Breai Mason-Campbell! She was kind enough to share some of her time with me for a chat about her views on race. She really got me thinking about how I can be more intentional about trying to improve the lives of American's who are black. Good stuff!

I met Breai because she did this AMAZING presentation called "Dancing White" at Goucher College that I happened to attend. So much wonderful information in this presentation!. I definitely recommend that you check it out!

Vincent Campbell, Breai's husband, produced the transition music in today's show. You can check out more of his work and follow him on Sound Cloud. https://soundcloud.com/alienwarheads
