A new podcast from The Atlantic and WNYC Studios, The Experiment, tells stories from our unfinished country. On this episode, Vann R. Newkirk II tells the story of his mother's life. Marylin Thurman Newkirk grew up as part of the first generation of Americans who lived in what Vann calls "true democracy" — but that democracy is now at risk.
