MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ Winner Monica Muñoz Martinez

October 1, 2021  Correspondent Russell Contreras (also the race and justice reporter for Axios) speaks with recent “Genius Grant” winner, MacArthur Fellow Monica Muñoz Martinez. The educator and public historian was awarded the prestigious fellowship earlier this week for her work to address racial injustice, particularly anti-Mexican violence in border territories. The pair talks about the common threads between 19th, 20th and 21st century incidents and how the past informs the way America views power.
