Today we’re joined by, award-winning journalist and best-selling author, Celeste Headlee!
A self-described “light-skinned Black Jew,” Celeste Headlee has been forced to speak about race—including having to defend or define her own—since childhood. In her career as a journalist for public media, she’s made it a priority to talk about race proactively. She’s discovered, however, that those exchanges have rarely been productive.
In today’s conversation, we discussed a bit of everything from hard conversations around race, the things she’s been privy to because some didn’t realize that she too is Black, how to move away from overworking and so much more!
