AAS21 Podcast

AAS 21 is a podcast conversation about the books and ideas animating the field of African American Studies in the 21st Century and the political, economic, and cultural forces that shape our understanding of race and racial groups. We invite you to listen as we “read” how race and culture are produced globally – looking past outcomes to beginnings, questioning dominant discourses, and considering evidence instead of myth. The podcast is recorded and produced at Princeton University in the Department of African American Studies.
