Former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who led the controversial effort to remove Confederate statues from the city and who now runs E Pluribus Unum- a nonprofit focused on advancing racial equity in the south, breaks down how we are divided by design. Race courses through every facet of our lives, yet too few people-- particularly white people-- truly understand the scale of racism in America, including our history and how racism still permeates today's institutions. The Divided by Design podcast features discussions with advocates, historians, and experts about how race intersects with health, wealth, criminal justice, housing, and voting rights. By better understanding how we got here to this moment, we can better chart a path forward towards a more just, inclusive and equitable America for us all.
