Dr. Ifetayo Flannery, Assistant Professor and Chair of Undergrad Chair of Africology and African American Studies at Temple University helps us better understand the difference between Africology and African American Studies.
Dr. Flannery talks about how Africana Studies changed her perspective of herself and the world and how it can be applied to K-12 education. Host Shayna Terrell of the Center for Black Educator Development asks Dr. Flannery to share the impact African American studies can have on young students, especially Black children.
The conversation touches on how to best incorporate Black studies into curriculum and resistance to teaching Black studies. The episode also covers Black psychology, the term "Black" when referring to the African diaspora, and more.
