On this episode we will be looking into and discussing Eileen Southern, a scholar of Renaissance and African-American music and the first black woman to be appointed a tenured full professor at Harvard University, and her works. After that, I have the honor to speak with Shirley Moodey Turner, an associate professor of English and African American Studies. She is the author of Black Folklore and the Politics of Racial Representation, co-editor of Contemporary African American Literature: The Living Canon, and has recently signed on as editor of volume VII (focusing on the years 1900-1910) for the Cambridge University Press multi-volume project, African American Literature in Transition. Along with all her works, we will be discussing her latest project The Anna Julia Cooper Digital Project!
