Many see Shaun King on the frontlines of America's movement for police accountability and civil rights. What is less visible is how this very public fight shows up in the private lives of those leading the movement. In this intimate podcast we get to know Rai King, equity director, lifelong educator, mother of five, and spouse of Shaun King. She and Shaun candidly discuss the highs and lows of being married and raising a family in the midst of this tumultuous political climate. All episodes launch to members of The North Star first.

Episode details

Rai & Shaun recorded this episode just hours after they found out that Rodney Reed's execution had been stayed. They talk about their decision to involve their kids in that case, and also give a behind-the-scenes look into the organizing Shaun did to create the most signed petition EVER on behalf of someone on death row. Through their conversation, Rai & Shaun analyze America's legal system, discuss the moral implications of the death penalty, and so much more.
