Breaking Through is off this week, but we rounded up some of our favorite recent moments for this "Best Of" episode!

This week we cover the intersection of art, culture, representation and politics with Jessica Byrd, a woman who was named the January Woman to Watch by Essence Magazine, “12 New Faces of Black Leadership” by Time Magazine, and Rolling Stone named her one of the most influential millennials shaping the 2016 election. Next, we cover the recently released book Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color. Then we discuss why the fight for the Dream Act and for fair treatment of immigrant families is a fight for all of us. And lastly, a conversation about the next best steps in gun violence prevention.
