"Speeches, music, podcasts, and interviews can be highly engaging, accessible elements of antiracist lessons."
This article has examples of the importance of including podcasts, speeches, interviews, music, etc. into classroom lessons for a variety of reasons, including "their capacity to promote antiracism in the classroom." I think that being able to hear a variety of people speak is valuable as is helping make material accessible for English language learners, students with learning challenges such as dyslexia, and the affordability of most sound texts. The importance of the the way that educators teach and discuss the text as well as the culture of the classroom is stressed.
