Special guest Tarik Davis (Freestyle Love Supreme, Brothers From Another Planet) graciously joins us to facilitate an in depth discussion of the evils of systemic racism through the lens of three historical figures - Thomas Jefferson, Napoleon Bonaparte, and J. Edgar Hoover. Send your feedback to @podcastbutevil. Tarik can be found at @tarikrdavis. And, of course, #BlackLivesMatter.
Also, Tarik was kind enough to direct us to the following additional sources:
“The Dark Side of Thomas Jefferson” by Henry Wiencek
“The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo” by Tom Reiss
“American Rule: How a Nation Conquered the World but Failed Its People” by Jared Yates Sexton
“The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” (dir. Stanley Nelson)
