Bonus Episode: Ohio Against the World (with Hanif Abdurraqib)


Zahir interviews poet and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib about his new collection of essays called “They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us.” Hanif speaks about growing up in Ohio, how the city’s Black population has been displaced, and why Black-owned restaurants are critical at a time in which, to quote one of his poems,  “the Black boy already begins to disappear from head-to-toe.”
