The Rap: Gita Jackson On The Cool Zone, Radical Politics And The US

“This is the moment in time that you are going to tell your children about – what did you do?” Gita Jackson is talking about “The Cool Zone”. The New York-based writer for Motherboard at Vice chats to Areej about what it means to be living in “The Cool Zone” and the state of American politics right now. 

The phrase “The Cool Zone” comes from a tweet from Sean Moorhead, a Bernie Sanders volunteer, and marks a period of social unrest and radical change. Gita explains that it’s a dangerous and scary place to be in, but it’s also fruitful, allowing radical ideas to develop and blossom into action.
