EP102 - Historian - Give Respect, Get Respect, Be Truthful, Sylvester Boyd Jr.


Sylvester Boyd Jr. is a geographer, historian and truth seeker. This conversation with Michael goes deep into questions of perspective, demythologizing America, leadership in non-monolithic societies, and overcoming resentment.


Sylvester helps Michael dissect race relations from a longer perspective, asking questions about the loss of community after integration, wealth inequality, personal responsibility, the train of progress going off the rails, and whether we’ve been sold a bad bill of goods on higher education.


Sylvester will return once we’ve had a chance to read his books.
