In this episode we caught up with artist, organizer, educator, and writer Devyn Springer to talk about the work and legacy of Walter Rodney. Devyn also spoke about the Rodney family and the Walter Rodney Foundation and the work they do in Atlanta. Josh and Jay asked Devyn about how he utilizes Rodney's pedagogy as a teacher and organizer, what Rodney's most important contributions were, and Rodney's theory of development and underdevelopment.
