What exactly IS radical inclusivity and what does it have to do with Critical Race Theory? On today’s episode we’re excited to be joined by Dr. Reiland Rabaka, to dive into this with us and explain how radical inclusivity goes beyond race. Dr. Rabaka is a professor of African, African American, and Caribbean Studies in the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and together we’re breaking down the idea of radical inclusivity including what it means, why it’s so important, and how to broaden our definition of Blackness and Africanity.

We’re exploring:

 

  • The wide range of expressions of what it means to be African and what it means to be Black
  • When education in school around race SHOULD be started

  • The most difficult conversation Dr. Rabaka’s mother had with him as a child

  • Why he teaches critical white studies in his classes

  • The Black Tax and how it affects us

  • How Dr. Rabaka is teaching differently and in doing so all his classes end up full and waitlisted

  • Hip hop feminisim and how he teaches it in his classes

  • And so much more!
