The Audible Original will be hosted by Charlamagne and Altucher and feature a range of voices from thought leaders, historians and pundits to address assumptions and attitudes about systemic racism. The two will pose and discuss questions about unconscious bias, systemic racism, microaggressions, racial profiling, race relations, reparations, protest and inequities in education, finance, the judicial system and health care.
“I just want people to learn from this project. This Black brain trust that I curated consists of individuals that I learn from directly and indirectly. I know that other races will learn from them, too. I want this project to serve as a road map for all white people in regard to matters dealing with Black people,” Charlamagne exclusively told The Hollywood Reporter. “There are so many assumptions being made and rarely have I witnessed assumptions turn into facts. The only dumb question is the one not asked, so for all the questions you’ve ever wanted to ask Black people, you can trust and believe that ‘We’ve Got Answers.'”
A group of experts will also participate in the series, including social justice leader and activist Tamika D. Mallory, Grammy Award-winning music producer David Branner, Revolt Black News host and executive producer Eboni K. Williams, and Brooklyn Borough president Eric Adams.
