Baratunde acknowledges the increased (and sometimes awkward) efforts of white Americans standing in solidarity with Black lives at this moment. Then he explores the global reach of this moment through an in-depth conversation with Diana Arce, a Black Lives Matter organizer in Berlin, Germany. Yep, you’re going to hear a Black person speak German! Combined, both the domestic and international solidarity have helped this moment feel far less lonely than similar moments in the past.
