When Civil Rights leaders are trying to get an idea across to Americans, a common strategy is to get American allies abroad onboard with the same idea. Brenda Gayle Plummer is a professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the deeply rooted tradition of fighting anti-Black racism by appealing to other countries, and what the global protest movement means for our democracy.
