Princeton African American Studies Podcast 1: ‘Convergences and Dissonance’

This podcast is about the election and discusses several of the arguments we have mentioned in past articles and in general is very illuminating for people who care about left politics.


In the first podcast produced by the Princeton University Department of African American Studies, colleagues Eddie S. Glaude Jr., Imani Perry, Naomi Murakawa, and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor discuss, among other topics, contemporary American politics and the disaster called this election. The discussion moves from examining the political policy points put forward by Clinton and Trump to the political vision put forward by the Movement for Black Lives. The group also addresses the demands of mainstream media, considers how scholars and activists may understand their interaction with media, and discusses how scholars and activists may serve as bridges to one another.


The participants are


Eddie S. Glaude Jr-chair of the Center for African-American Studies and the William S. Tod Professor of Religion and African-American Studies

Imani Perry-Hughes-Rogers professor of African American studies

Naomi Murakawa-associate professor of African American Studies

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor-currently on sabbatical and author of the From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation, which recently won the 2016 Cultural Freedom Award for an Especially Notable Book
