While Max is away, Yusuf will be joined by guest co-hosts Tag Harmon and Jean'na Kenney. We'll have a candid discussion about the forgotten and most times ignored history that 40% of the enslavers were white women.

We'll share an interview with Prof. Stephanie Jones-Rogers about her book, They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South. We'll see how this history shaped the erasure of black women from the Women's Suffrage Movement and Voting Rights.

We're talking about Femme Fatale Frenemies: A Relationship That Started on the Plantation and perpetuates to this day.

As always, we'll have powerful music clips, and we'll bring the ancestors' words back to life for a new generation with our Bridging The Gap segment.
