"Negroland"

Hosted by

Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Margo Jefferson explores the world of African American privilege in her new memoir, Negroland. It's the story of growing up black and affluent in Chicago in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Jefferson took dance classes, went to great schools, and had a wardrobe full of beautiful dresses…everything a little girl could want. But the comforts of her life would never seem quite as comfortable as the privilege of being white.
