There’s a chill in the air because the seasons have changed...and it’s the time when folks look for hayrides, corn mazes and a fun scare. This week’s playlist is all about tapping into that mood and is perfectly paired with an essay from Jasmine Graham on Black folk horrors. Beyond that,...

Images of border patrol agents using a whip-like cord to round up Haitians for mass deportation went viral, despite the fact that they were seeking asylum from a country that has recently been devastated by both natural disaster and extreme political instability.
