Journalist Ernest Owens wrote a piece for New York Magazine called The Rise & Rupture of Campaign Zero, in which he speaks to one of the founders of that organization, Johnetta Elzie, and why she fell out. jarrett and Tre’vell have spoken in passing around ego and celebrity in the broader Black Lives Matter ecosystem, and this week seemed like the right time to get into it.

About the show

Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
