In this episode, we’ll be continuing our two-part conversation with Danielle Mason. If you haven’t heard part one, we recommend you go back and listen to catch up on her story. In that interview, she told us about her youth in Montgomery, Alabama, her family’s involvement in the early civil rights struggles at the church of Martin Luther King, Jr., and making law firm partner in less than five years.
Just before conducting the second interview you’ll hear today, Danielle sent me 40 pages of her new book manuscript. In this interview, Danielle explains why our conversation seemed to spark that creative impulse. We’ll also learn what bothers her most about discussions of diversity, how she dealt with the emotional weight of deathbed depositions, and the true value of an incredible life partner.
