In the wake of insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Deval shares his conversations with Meb Keflezighi, the Eritrean-born American long distance runner who won the 2014 Boston Marathon, and the legendary singer-songwriter James Taylor. The talks range from their individual upbringings with personal struggles and successes, to finding hope in difficult times — whether it’s a bombing at the finish line, lynchings on our streets or extremist violence in Washington D.C. How do we find light in the darkness? How do we tell America’s stories accurately, with all of its blemishes, and how do we live up to our ideals?
