Several professors affiliated with the African American Studies Program are featured in the newest issue of Arts & Sciences Magazine.
For the project titled A Better Future, the magazine interviewed researchers including Dr. Louis Chude-Sokei, Dr. Katherine Levine Einstein, Dr. Saida Grundy, Dr. Margarita Simon Guillory, and Dr. Spencer Piston.
Here’s a preview of what these professors have been working on:
Louis Chude-Sokei has developed a nonracist artificial intelligence algorithm and explores history through sound.
Katherine Levine Einstein is investigating housing relief efforts and joining with communities to help those in danger of losing their homes.
Saida Grundy looks beyond police brutality to highlight acts of white state violence that can’t be captured in short videos.
Margarita Simon Guillory says the nation cannot move forward until it listens to the voices of peoples and cultures deliberately silenced.
Spencer Piston wants to help students and alums push BU to do more to reduce prison populations.
