In Episode 6, I discuss the reality of what it meant to travel across the world in 1994. In my reading of Chapter 2 from my book, Not As Crazy As You Think, entitled "The Scientific Library," while working as a periodicals clerk in the American Museum of Natural History library in 1994, my wise supervisor Roscoe, once a world traveler and 1960s black civil rights activist, inspires me to seek enlightenment. He leads me to Darwin’s Origin of the Species among other books in the stacks on scientific racism by white colonialists of the late 1800s convinced of the white man’s burden. Eager to spread my wings, when an old college friend extends to me an invitation to visit his homeland of India, I eagerly accept.
