Phil talks to Jerome about his forthcoming book: "Einstein on Race and Racism". This book explores a dimension of Einstein that has not been mentioned in over one hundred biographies - his outspoken activism against US racism, and friendship with African American leaders like Paul Robeson and W.E.B. DuBois. Einstein, who called racism "America's worst disease", was a member of the "American Crusade to End Lynching" that organized a march on Washington in December 1946.
