Just how valuable is a college education, or advanced degree(s)? The answer, it turns out, is complex and complicado. For this week’s conversation, jarrett and Tre’vell are joined by Dr. Charles Davis, an assistant professor at University of Michigan, focusing on issues of race, racism, and resistance. They each take a look at their own journeys in higher education, and whether obtaining their degree–or not–was worth the time and money they invested.

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).
