Our Body Politic

Sunday, January 14 at 1pm on WUOT

Hosted by Farai Chideya, creator of Our Body Politic, January 6th: An American Story is a one-hour audio documentary focused on the Black and brown legal eagles of the January 6th Committee.

The January 6th Committee Hearings reached an audience of 20 million-plus people, and the investigators behind them stepped up to save American democracy. A surprising number of these investigators were Black, Latino, or South Asian — including three of the five team leads.

These are the people whose work laid the foundation for the indictments of former President Trump. They endured the trauma of investigating the most powerful white supremacists in America, as well as tracing the legal and financial web of January 6th. You'll hear from the investigators what it took to save our democracy.
