Wade Henderson joins host Sushma Raman to discuss the multigenerational and multiracial fight against systemic racism in the Unites States. 


Wade Henderson serves as the interim president of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and The Leadership Conference Education Fund, organizations he previously led for more than 20 years. The Leadership Conference is the nation’s premier civil and human rights coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States. The Education Fund is its research, communications, and public education arm. The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is committed to building an America as good as its ideals. 

The struggle for the soul of this country is really a struggle to reconcile the inability to address a fundamental problem with American democracy, which traces its roots back to slavery as one of our founding institutions.
