This week, Grace talks to Olúfẹ́mi Táíwò about his two new books, Reconsidering Reparations and Elite Capture: How the Powerful Took Over Identity Politics (and Everything Else). We discuss what ‘identity politics’ actually means, why it’s so often contrasted to ‘class politics,’ and what socialists need to do to create inclusive, sustainable social movements.
