Welcome back to “The Stakes.” Coming up on the show this week:
Part 1: Jamil Smith speaks with Earledreka White — the black woman who called 911 after being pulled over by a police officer for a traffic stop, and then was violently arrested — about what happened, and how it’s affected her life.
Part 2: Ana Marie Cox talks to Christian Picciolini, a man who helps former white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and extreme right activists leave those kinds of hate groups through his organization Life After Hate.
Part 3: Jane Coaston speaks with Betty Okino, one of the legendary black gymnasts who paved the way for Simone Biles.
Part 4: Our poet-in-residence Marcus Ellsworth speaks to the power of pronouns and self-determination.
Want more? We've got a bonus episode of "The Stakes" for all you Olympic gymnastics stans, featuring Jane Coaston's full interview with Betty Okino.
