Fair and Just Fellow Heather McGhee on MLK, Race, and Democracy

“Dr. King mentioned this idea that racism is an ill that is not only poisonous to people of color, but it's something that rots at the soul of white people—and that it fundamentally weakens our democracy and makes the United States a much poorer country than it could be otherwise."

– Heather McGhee
