How I Got Over: A Conversation with Janet Mock
How I Got Over
Originally Aired: Monday, June 26, 2017
Janet Mock continues to chronicle her journey as a writer, TV host and advocate in her new memoir, “Surpassing Certainty.” In this follow-up to her 2014 bestselling “Redefining Realness,” Mock revisits her young adulthood as she learns how to navigate her trans identity and advocate for herself, so that she could go on to advocate for others.
WNYC editor Rebecca Carroll hosts an unconventional conversation with Mock about her writing and activism as part of The Greene Space’s series How I Got Over.
About How I Got Over series:
Join us for a new project reinventing language around race through a series of conversations and performances that explore, express and examine what it means when a social construct becomes the social order. We want people to get personal. We want provocative dialogue. We want to generate new language to execute real change. We want to talk about fear – and how it’s different if you are black or white. We want to hear people explore racism.
Discover and watch previous conversations with Ethan Hawke, Kristin Davis, Ezra Edelman, Jacqueline Woodson and Daniel José Older, and LaToya Ruby Frazier, Carrie Mae Weems and Sarah Lewis.
