Are you bored by our national conversation on race? Are you tired of hearing about "blackface" or "why white people can't say the n-word" or "blah blah blah black on black crime"? I mean how many more times are we going to ask Coates about hope and why white people like his book? Can we please move on to THE NEXT QUESTION?
I think we can do better. In fact, I think its imperative that we do better. I think we must insert more nuance, more complexity, more facts, and more imagination into the conversation. Lets move this conversation forward.
With your support, lets create a new talk show web series, called THE NEXT QUESTION! Lets invite activists and historians and artists and academics to tell us more, to step on our toes, to widen our idea for what's possible!
Next week, I am going to launch a kickstarter for The Next Question! And i sure hope you will be a part of this project!
I think this could really be something special for us. For those of us who ask hard questions because we are bored by easy answers... for those of us who read voraciously... for those of us speaking truth to power...
I think you are special.
More details to come! xoxoxo
