In this episode, we discuss the philosophy and methodology we use to define Black Myths. Our goal is to give the audience a framework of how we evaluate myths, define a myth, and make it worthy of discussion. We also discuss the psychology behind why some of us as Black people cling to myths despite being presented with counter-evidence.
With us to explore these concepts is nationally recognized scholar, speaker, educator, and organizer, Taharka Anderson. His scholar-activism centers Black educational philosophy, the narratives and social vulnerabilities of Black males, and Black students and school discipline. He is currently a doctoral student in the African and African Diaspora Studies Department at the University of Texas at Austin. He has a master's degree in the Social & Cultural Analysis of Education and a bachelor's degree in Sociology with a minor in Africana Studies, both from California State University, Long Beach.
