RadioActive is an hour long talk show hosted by Natalie Kivell, a Ph.D. candidate in Community Well-Being at the University of Miami. Each week Natalie interviews academics and/or activists from around the world who dive into critical discussions from a Community Psychology lens aimed specifically at addressing structural inequality and the root causes of our complex social problems. The show aims to provoke listeners to think differently about social change and social justice to help shift how we think, act and react to social change efforts in our research and practice.
RadioActive airs every Sunday at 6pm on wvum.org out of the University of Miami student radio station.
In this special episode of RadioActive, Dr. Dominique Thomas and Allana Zuckerman join Natalie to talk about the upcoming Black Lives Matter special issue of the journal, Community Psychology in a Global Perspective. They discuss the conversations and conference sessions where the need for empirical and narrative research about and with the BLM movement became evident, while digging into the question – Do Black Scholars Matter in Community Psychology. From two emerging scholars, this interview provides both critique and a vision for the future for the role of black scholarship, black scholars and lessons from and catalyzing for black social movements.
