RaceNYT: is This America?

Is Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) calling out America for “slippin’ up” with his newest music video, “This is America”? The internet has been buzzing with think pieces and discussions on the imagery and message behind the video’s critique of race and gun violence in America. Today, we are taking a deep dive into the video with Eric Deggans, NPR’s TV critic; David Pilgrim, an author and historian; and Julia Craven, a race and black culture writer for HuffPost. If you have any thoughts or questions, leave them in the comments and Rachel Swarns and John Eligon, New York Times writers, will bring you into the discussion.
