Episode 7: Senegal and Reflections on Life in the US

Ndeye Ndao and I cover a lot of ground in this episode, from her initial impressions of American culture as a 19-year-old international student, changes in Senegal since she left to pursue her education, civil rights in the US and Senegal, the role of religion in her life and in Senegalese culture, why she wants more African Americans to visit Africa and connect to African culture, the differences between racism, bias, and passive support for racist systems, her feelings about being a woman of color and an immigrant in America today, and more.
