This week, I talked to Charles Blow (pictured above), New York Times opinion columnist and author of “The Devil You Know: A Black Power Manifesto,” about his proposal for building Black political power in the South. Dr. Ashish Jha of Brown University explained why vaccinating against Covid-19 must be a global effort, and Dr. Debra Furr-Holden of Michigan State University said getting Black Americans vaccinated is a key part of that effort. Our business of entertainment contributor Casey Mendoza broke down who was nominated, who was snubbed, and who might be miscategorized at the Golden Globes. And political roundtable regulars Errin Haines and Jess Morales Rocketto explained why it’s important to keep trying to hold former President Trump accountable for his actions, despite his acquittal by the Senate.
