The Resistance Will Be Podcasted

Welcome back to “The Stakes,”  where we're trying our best to make sense of a world that increasingly defies the rules of logic. Coming up on the show today:

Part 1: MTV News staff writer Doreen St. Félix talks with I Am Not Your Negro director Raoul Peck, whose film continues the legacy of one of America’s most notable writers and social critics.

Part 2: Producer James T. Green heads to the Bronx Documentary Center for "Whose Streets? Our Streets!” an exhibit that acts as a testament to the deep spirit of resistance that we're feeling all over the country right now.

Part 3: Poet-in-residence Marcus Ellsworth reminds us why we continue to fight back against modern racism with his work, “The Ghost Of Jim Crow.”

Thanks for being with us on this journey, internet.
