Ashley speaks with Ruha Benjamin about her book, Viral Justice: How We Grow the World We Want.
This book has been described as, “Part memoir, part manifesto, Viral Justice is a sweeping and deeply personal exploration of how we can transform society through the choices we make every day.”
They talk about privilege being used for a better society, the ways viral justice is continuous, and the detriments of grind culture. Ruha also talks about her work as the Founding Director of the Ida B. Wells Just Data Lab at Princeton University.
