The Cost of Flying High

The Cost of Flying High
Race and Power
September 9, 2021

What does it cost to achieve the traditional measures of success? What if your racial identity, your cultural heritage, or your family history was an obstacle to getting ahead? In this episode, two highly accomplished people talk about what success required of them. We move beyond the obvious necessities of hard work, talent, and perseverance and explore what people sometimes hide or give up, to exceed societal expectations.
