OMG you guys. Talking to Rafranz is like talking to the friend you’ve been missing for years who is so impressive it makes you babble.
We hit on growing up and reading her first book by a black author, segregation, #educolor, body image, teaching her children, and surviving the zombie apocalypse.
This Week’s Syllabus:
To Read: Can I say everything Melinda writes? But particularly this piece for the Atlantic on why white kids need diverse teachers. (Also, I mistakenly call her Melissa in the podcast cause I am the worst. It’s Melinda. I’m Sorry.)
To Listen: Is there any other option? Lemonade.
To Watch: (Well, also, Lemonade but) Fermat’s Room. I am showing this movie to my third period seniors and I love that it is not only a great and addictive thriller but it’s about people doing math, in Spanish. This vine about Sexual Assault Prevention Month. NSFW
