Eric Adams
Jeanna Shepard

In the wake of the George Floyd killing and protests around the world, host Eric Adams began interviewing Martha’s Vineyarders, both year-round and seasonal, black and white, about race. A therapist raised by a white mother and a black father, Mr. Adams drew on his experience with people in recovery to help his guests explore the unique experiences that shaped their lives.

In a series of interviews to be released weekly on Fridays, Mr. Adams presents these conversations to encourage listeners to shed their old beliefs about race and make room for a new understanding of its impact and implications.
