256 Discussing Racism as Zoological Witchcraft: A Guide to Getting Out, with Aph Ko!
This week we’re talking to Aph Ko about themes in her new book, Racism as Zoological Witchcraft: A Guide to Getting Out, including intersectionality, social media, and more!
In This Episode
We had a kickass conversation with Aph Ko about all things activism and social justice as they relate to themes in her new book, Racism as Zoological Witchcraft: A Guide to Getting Out.
We talk about the gaps in an intersectional framework as applied to social justice issues outside of the legal system, how social media influence and a colonial approach to activism stifles our creativity as activists, Afrofuturism, and fighting for a better future instead of just fighting.
