Episode 14 | Baron Vaughn

This week we’re hanging out with Baron Vaughn.  He talks to us about growing up in Vegas, performing arts school, race construction, privilege, double consciousness, and how attractive scapegoating can be.  We also get into what parents of color have to do/say to keep their kids safe, as well as the myth of fatherless black children.  For more on that, FOR SURE check out Fatherless.

You can also see him on Grace & Frankie and the new Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return, and listen to his new album Blaxistential Crisis.  Or if you live in LA, check out The New Negroes at UCB Franklin!!
