Recording: When Culture Wars Come to School, Mar 8, 2022

NBC News' Antonia Hylton & Mike Hixenbaugh’s #1 hit podcast, Southlake, tells the story of how an idyllic Texas city became a symbol of a new national reckoning over race & education. They've heard from parents & educators across the US who say the same thing is happening in their districts. The journalists will be joined by author George M. Johnson & school librarian Carolyn Foote to discuss the next front in the classroom culture war: The movement to ban books on race, sex, gender & sexuality.
