The Black Studies Podcast brings together scholars, activists, and artists to discuss creative and collaborative knowledge-making. 

Inspired by creative and enthusiastic social visions of Black life, livingness, and culture, our conversations consider how we can forge new forms of belonging with time, space, and each other; explore intellectual work within, beyond, and outside the university; cultivate interdisciplinary and intergenerational communication; and engage with the practice of joy in and against sorrow
