After deconstructing racism with his 2019 TED talk and exploring black identity in his NY Times bestselling memoir How to Be Black, Baratunde Thurston is breaking down civic engagement with his new iHeartRadio podcast How to Citizen with Baratunde.

WNYC’s Jami Floyd (Senior Editor, Race and Justice) joins Baratunde to discuss his wide-ranging career and what he’s learned from sitting down with activists, revolutionaries and experts about the responsibilities we all have to our country. Special guest Farai Chideya (creator and host of Our Body Politic) also sits down with Baratunde.
