This week on Our Body Politic, my guests and I dissected the aftermath of the January 6th coup attempt at the Capitol. I broke down what I call the “Black Cassandra Syndrome” and why I think more people should listen to journalists of color. New York AG Letitia James shared the values that guide her work, which includes investigating President Trump. Boston Globe reporter Jazmine Ulloa reflected on her first-hand experience of the Capitol siege. As transition director of Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris’ team, political strategist Minyon Moore expanded on Harris’ role in uniting the country. Plus, I introduced a new extended segment of “Sippin’ the Political Tea” with our regular contributors Errin Haines and Jess Morales Rocketto.
