November 23, 2023: Thankful for Scholarly Communities: Black in Boston & Beyond Podcast

[For this year’s Thanksgiving series, I wanted to express thanks for a handful of opportunities I’ve had to connect with scholarly communities this Fall. Leading up to a special tribute to my two most important scholarly influences!]

Dr. Hettie Williams isn’t just in a tie for the most prolific Guest Poster here on AmericanStudies, although she is indeed that. She’s also an equally prolific podcast host who has generously shared my work, voice, and book Of Thee I Sing on two occasions: back in July 2021 for the New Books Network; and this Fall for her newly launched Black in Boston & Beyond podcast for the William Monroe Trotter Institute at UMass Boston (of which Hettie is the new Director!). I really appreciated the chance to share some thoughts on one of my favorite historic sites, the Boston Black Heritage Trail, as well as many other examples of Black critical patriotism in and beyond Boston. Hettie is one of the most supportive folks out there for many different communities (including her service at President of the African American Intellectual History Society), and I’ve loved the chance to connect with her on many different projects, including this two-part podcast conversation.

Last Thanks-giving tomorrow,


PS. Communities (or anything else) you’re thankful for this year?
