Transcript of #podcastblackout

This is not a traditional episode of Art History for All. This is in protest of the epidemic of racism and police brutality that black people experience in America every single day. Thanks to the Cult 45 podcast for starting this Podcast Blackout—you can find them at cult45podcast on Twitter or by searching for Cult 45 on your favorite podcast app. I’ve put a list of resources to educate yourself on anti-racism and donate to anti-racist causes in the show notes and at the end of the transcript.
