My guests join me to discuss their search for their academic voice. Students from Yale and Cornell, Tia Hicks and Kayla Vinson discuss the research that they are conducting this summer. Many people struggle with graduate level academic writing and frankly give up. But there are some that continue to fight and come through with a powerful and authentic voice. Tia's research looks at the black women within the Black panther party and their relationship with feminism. Kayla's research examines why young black boys struggle within the school setting. Join me on this Richard Brown show see how these sisters are progressing. Thank you for your support and please share your experience with me in finding your academic voice.
