Munya and Brian begin their discussion of Chapter 12 of Greg Grandin’s The End of the Myth by exploring the role that Cold War policy abroad affected civil rights policy at home. They also take a deeper look at the US relationship with Apartheid South Africa.

We will be discussing the excellent documentary The Pruitt-Igoe Myth that you can (and should) watch for free on youtube or Kanopy.
