Myisha Cherry — UnMuted

Left Bank Books
Thursday, March 21 | 7-8:30 p.m.

Why do people hate one another? Who gets to speak for whom? What does segregation look like today? Many of us ponder and discuss urgent questions such as these, but don’t have access to the important new ways philosophers are thinking about these issues. Enter UnMute, the popular podcast hosted by Myisha Cherry, which hosts a diverse group of philosophers and explores their cutting-edge work through casual conversation. This book collects Cherry’s lively and timely interviews. This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of UnMuted from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
