Dec 3, 2018

Segment 1: Jabari Asim on race in America.

"We Can't Breathe" is a collection of essays exploring how the legacy of racism fits into the stories we tell about our past. On this episode, author and St. Louis native Jabari Asim discusses storytelling in his St. Louis neighborhood, the complexity of the founding fathers, and why racism doesn't surprise him.

Segment 2, beginning at 35:53: The legacy of Kansas City born artist Robert Morris.

Robert Morris was one of the founders of the minimalist art movement. He was born and trained in Kansas City, and he created the "deceptively simple" Glass Labyrinth at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
