June 28, 2019, in Audio > Podcasts, by

America’s Most Challenging Issue is a podcast produced by Bahaiteachings.org  that features interviews with Baha’is in the United States who are actively building racial unity through building community. Hosted by Masud Olufani, this episode features scholar, filmmaker, photographer, and public speaker Justin de Leon. Justin uses his prodigious creative gifts to examine systemic structures of power, and how communities subject to the destructive machinations of these systems find creative ways to resist material and spiritual domination.
