This is a replay of the episode with Corey's three daughters talking about their experiences with racism as teenagers. A must-listen for parents and students alike! 

We're running some of our favorite episodes back. This episode with Andre Henry about the challenge of trying to hold Christianity and Black existence together is a must listen! 

This conversation is one of our favorites. Listen as Corey and Mike McHargue discuss spiral dynamics, race and equality, and mental health. 

This is an episode that is chock-full of goodness. Corey joined Tina and Jen of the Speaking of Racism podcast and movement to discuss how they do anti-racism work together and how to engage in anti-racism responsibly and with joy.
