How Our Families and Communities Can Become Healthy at Last: Eric Adams on PYP 432
October 9, 2020
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams returns to the podcast to talk about his new book, Healthy at Last. Part family memoir, part political mission statement, part science review, part self-help book, and part cookbook, this is a celebration of the possibilities of health for the American people in general, and the Black community in particular.
We talk about the title - from Etta James, and not Martin Luther King, Jr's "I have a dream" speech, as I first assumed - and the fact that, in Adams' words, "slavery never ended," and remains entrenched in the slave foods that are still harming Black people to this day.
And we explore some of the policy initiatives BP Adams has launched to bring the practice of plant-based health to Brooklyn, New York City, and the world.
