**  Dr. Taylor recently received death threats after a speech she had made at the Hampshire College graduation. Fox ‘News’ obtained her speech, clipping from it and re-presenting it to their audiences. Soon after, Dr. Taylor received a barrage of threats on her life and her family, forcing her to cancel several speaking events. We think Dr. Taylor’s voice should be heard… again!

Is whitelash enough of an explainer for the rise of president-elect Donald Trump? Is it rigorous enough to blame the people who didn’t show up to vote for our impending collective struggle under this administration?

On this edition of Making Contact, we rebroadcast a speech contextualizing the election results from Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Associate Professor in the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University, and author of “From Black Lives Matter to Black Liberation.”

Special thanks to KPFA for hosting and recording Dr. Taylor’s speech.
