This thirty-second episode of the Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast features a follow-up interview with Dr. Tommy J Curry of Texas A&M University (who featured in Ep9 before this one), on the controversy and death threats that he endured when a piece was published mischaracterizing his work in The American Conservative.
Dr. Curry is the author of The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and the Dilemmas of Black Manhood, which was published in July of 2017 with Temple University Press. Dr. Curry's work and the attacks he received were examined closely in a piece published on Snopes.com, which shows the dangerous error that the AC piece made. An excellent bit of reporting and writing came out in The Chronicle of Higher Education on Tommy's story too, though it is situated behind a "pay wall."
