Bringing BlackStudies to communities through Blac
Since 2011, ICUSP & KLRU PBS TV Austin have produced BlackademicsTV, which records & shares top black studies scholarship with popular & classroom audiences. Scholars around the nation produce important, interesting, informative, potentially empowering black studies scholarship that is seldom disseminated in such a way as to be of direct, immediate use to broad communities of learners. BlackademicsTV trains and records presenters, produces study guides and shares their talks via TV & internet.
