This week, Matt is joined by Stephanie Paulsell to discuss Wizarding supremacy in the Harry Potter series and a recent report on the legacy of slavery at Harvard. The two consider how we might use the Harry Potter series to think through injustices that are deeply ingrained into our buildings and gathering places, and what responsibility we have to name and atone for our shared history of violence and oppression.
Thanks to Callie, Jaime, Erica, and our anonymous caller for their beautiful voicemail contributions! Next week we're reading Chapter Sixteen, The Goblet of Fire, through the theme of maturity.
