AAS 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 and contextualize the dominant discourse, and consider evidence instead of myths.
