Black History Today, Tomorrow, and Forever (ft. Dr. Greg Carr)

Episode Summary

Dr. Greg Carr, Associate Professor at Howard University, and host of "In Class with Carr" joins host Shayna Terrell to drop some knowledge on the actual history of "Black History Month."

Dr. Carr speaks on the importance of elevating and preserving Black History and on the events taking place in Florida (and around the country) where Black history and teaching truth seem to be under attack. Shayna and Dr. Carr discuss Critical Race Theory, Black Queer Studies, and Intersectionality and how these topics are now seen as "indoctrination" by those on the right.

Finally, the episode touches on the term "woke," and how we can move beyond the basic narratives and tropes that get trotted out every Black History Month.
