Nikole Hannah-Jones has been covering race, civil rights and segregation in America for decades. She joined Errol to talk about how growing up in Iowa led to a career in journalism and how she brings her own experience into her reporting.
She also weighs in on the debate over segregation in the New York City education system and discusses her newest initiative, the 1619 Project, which marks 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to what would become the United States.
