In our inaugural episode, we interview local organizer, leader and revolutionary, Jenay Manley of KC Tenants. Ryan and Jenay delve deep into the violent policies that contribute to inequitable housing in Kansas City – as Jenay ties it to her own story as a victim of Kansas City’s viciously dehumanizing and racist housing system.
Manley also provides sharp critique and analysis on the recent coup attempt by White Supremacists in the US capitol. The show ends by both Jenay and Ryan peering into the future and employing the tradition of the Black radical imagination.
