A Conversation with Marcie from Black Coffee with White Friends
I am joined by Marcie Alvis-Walker, an educator and writer who runs Black Coffee with White Friends, alongside Mockingbird History Lessons for Adults, and the Cream & Sugar book club.
We discuss the importance of choosing to dedicate time towards doing good, making sure that we vote for leaders who aren't cowards, and Parable of the Talents by Octavia Butler whose work is pertinent now more than ever.
