Margo Jefferson grew up among the black elite in Chicago and blazed a path as a Pulitzer Prize-winning critic. But her experiences with privilege and class also provided her with a unique window about the realities of race and opportunity in the United States – and how they’ve evolved since the Civil Rights era. Kojo chats with Jefferson about her new memoir and how her experiences frame her perspective about today’s current “Black Lives Matter” movement.
