Apple Picking / #2 | Jay Matthews

Listen on

Episode notes

Philadelphia native and Temple University student Jay Matthews has been intrinsic in the Philadelphia-area protests and movement. Jay delves into how she 'knew' the I-676 protest would result in a tear-gas tragedy, why the event unfolding should not be classified as a 'race war' but a 'race unity', and how protesting rekindled old friendships and opened new doors. She also reflects on her shift at Rita's Italian Ice during the peak of looting in Philadelphia.
