Episode Details

Original tape date: September 11, 2018.

First aired: October 26, 2018.

For many, mass movements have made them aware of media's failure to inform and represent them. Activists are now working to make their own media, and to rebuild the empowering media infrastructures that have existed previously. This week, we visit a local, innovative radio station in Kingston, NY and talk to DeRay Mckesson, activist and author, about how he's turned social media into social justice.
