Put Some Respect on Haiti's Name

Sep 8, 2021

Haiti may be considered the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere and a country we Americans only hear about when there's a massive earthquake or political turmoil. But Haiti is a nation with tremendous legacy. Haiti was a nation that beat three European empires to become a free nation. Haiti was the first nation to ban slavery. It was the first nation in Latin America and the Caribbean to achieve independence. And so much more. Our guest today is Obed Lamy, a Haitian scholar, journalist, and filmmaker. 

On our premiere episode of Undisciplined, we discuss the begininnings and impact of the study of African and African American Studies in higher education. Our guest is Dr. Scot Brown, an associate professor of African American studies and History at the University of California, Los Angeles. We also spend time understanding and discussing critical race theory, and how it is being perceived in our current culture.
