The African American Studies Podcast

Our podcast, formerly known as the AAS21 Podcast,  acts as a conversation around the field of African American Studies and the black experience in the 21st century. We focus on the political, economic, and cultural forces that shape our understanding of race within America. We invite you to listen as we explore outcomes, question dominant discourse, and consider evidence instead of myths. The podcast is recorded and co-produced by Elio Lleo and Anthony Gibbons at Princeton University.
