Afro State of Mind by Lurie Daniel Favors provides a critical analysis of issues and current events impacting the Black community. Lurie is the author of Afro State of Mind: Memories of a Nappy Headed Black Girl, a story that uses one girl's experience with hair and colorism to explore race, history and identity.

This week's episode is called Shopping While Black.  The recent reports of high profile cases of retail racial profiling at Barneys and Macy's have their roots in a much deeper history. We will explore the legacy of Jim Crow and examine how racism evolved from the plantation to the luxury story. We will also take a look at how Jay Z's involvement with Barneys impacts the case.
