Baratunde Thurston (Author/Host of How To Citizen)

In this week’s episode, Isha is joined by author, comedian, and activist, Baratunde Thurston. From the hallways of Sidwell Friends School to behind the mic of his How To Citizen podcast, Baratunde employs humor, compassion, and a little bit of anger to convey his thoughts on race, culture, and politics. Isha and Baratunde discuss the significance of one’s upbringing, what it means to be an activist in today’s day and age, and the pillars of being an engaged citizen.
