Great radio show on higher education and its relationship to slavery.

Having the privilege to finish my undergraduate education at Sarah Lawrence College after struggling through mediocre public schools and then community college education changed my life. My experience there made me hyper aware of the legacy of colonialism, class and race. Especially there.
I am infinitely grateful to have had the opportunity to attend such a prestigious school. While SLC is not mentioned in this radio show, I still found it fascinating and really relevant to anyone considering a higher education or having experienced it themselves.
I'm also a total history nerd.
