Dava Shastri’s Last Day, Ch. 5 (Part 1)

Check out the second podcast episode on Dava Shastri’s Last Day! I’m continuing reading this book and in this episode, I dive a bit deeper into the text as the story progresses. This episode covers the first two segments of Chapter 5 (“Force of Nature”) which are told from Arvie and Sandi’s perspectives, respectively.

Find the episode on the following apps: Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, and PodBean OR listen here.

ASSIGNMENT: Racial Identity Autobiography Personal Essay & Artwork Project: When I First Realized the Color of My Skin
