Transcript for Binge This! Black Lives Matter edition
First though we want to get to our "Binge this." There's the air horn to make it official. And black lives matter, the movement, is highlighting our country's need for more perspective and understanding so we are focusing today's "Binge this" on content that encourages just that, and janai Norman is bringing that to us this morning. Janai, good morning. Good morning, whit. That's right. "People" magazine's Janine Rubenstein is recommending content by black educators and black entertainers that we should all binge, especially right now. Janine, welcome. Thank you so much for being here with us with this important let's begin with TV. Tell me what you suggest. The first thing I have to bring up is "When they see us" which is ava duvernay's beautiful series on Netflix about the exonerated five. She does it with this one and shows the human side of the story. It's a great time to take a look at this if you haven't seen it. You can really dig into this one right now. Yeah, and her documentary "13." Also incredibly powerful and eye opening. Both of those incredible pieces to watch. Thank you for that one. All right. There are also many great books that we can read. Tell us -- you've got a favorite. Yeah, "How to be an anti-racist." This is by Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, and I think it's great to pick up right now in this moment because instead of blowing the lid off the idea of, oh, I'm not a racist or I've never done anything racist, it's saying, what are you actively doing to be an anti-racist. It's not just this finite state we have to actively and proactively dismantle the thinking that the processes in our own lives and communities and in the world at large, and I feel like people are listening to that and trying to be proactive. Yeah, anti-racist, definitely a term we're starting to hear more now. There's also a YouTube series that you recommend that everyone at home binge. This is "The grapevine." This is a YouTube series with young black millennials in a round table discussion setting where they're really just going toe-to-toe and head-to-head on issues that are in the ether right now. Everything is very topical and sometimes just really entertaining. You have ahmaud arbery, discussing the ins and outs of that case, but also if you really want to know what the black young millennial is thinking right now, tune in to "The grapevine." They have an episode for it, I'm pretty sure of it. And the timeliness of that can certainly help get conversations started. Janine, you have a bonus binge for us. I think this one might be my favorite. Oh, yeah, this is the black lives matter or the black history playlists that are on Spotify. They are a move. I just have to say, amazing music by a lot of people like common, but also taking it back and Stevie wonder, tupac, Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce. You just get a sense of the music that's been fueling this movement since it began decades, centuries ago. Reporter: Yeah, I brought up that playlist last night. You mentioned Beyonce, childish Gambino and good old James brown. That is a great playlist there. Janine, thank you so much for being with us. Be sure to pick up this week's issue of "People" magazine on newsstands. That's nationwide. Back tyou guys in the studio. Great list. Great list. I want to check out that "Grapevine" show. That looks fascinating. Janine -- janai, thank you very much. Really appreciate it. Great to see you again on this Saturday morning.
