Tales of Two Cities: Marked
on February 27, 2017
This week’s episode features stories of people who are marked. Individuals tagged in some way and navigating the expectations that come along with their markings. Tune in to hear about: a self defense class for Muslim women, a poet speaking out despite a hearing disability, political tattoos, a former inmate helping others re enter society and an Ivy League scholar from Oakland.
