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.

In this final episode of Married to the Movement's first season, Rai & Shaun unpack how they fight: the most universal experience of being in a committed relationship. Rai & Shaun recorded this episode as a reflection on a fight they had in quarantine. While they talk about the strategies and tools that they've learned throughout their relationship, they also talk about the difficult fights when all the strategies and best practices fall away. Through their conversation, Rai & Shaun dismantle the idea that any couple is beyond fighting and establish that even public figures who are romanticized as #CoupleGoals have fights that can be messy and hard.
