Tarana Burke on Her Powerful New Memoir—And The Future of #MeToo
Season finale! Fifteen years ago, Tarana Burke started using two simple words to empower young Black and brown girls who had experienced sexual violence. Today, MeToo has exploded into a global movement that is both exactly what its founder imagined—and also, as she tells host Brittany Packnett Cunningham, often misunderstood. Now, with her debut memoir “Unbound” about to hit shelves, Burke sits down for an intimate, feature-length interview about the origins of the movement—and her own personal path to liberation. Plus, Brittany and our producers share their own highlights of a jam-packed first season.
