    In this episode, Teresa Hoard-Jackson speaks to Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo. Dr Lumumba-Kasongo is a Postdoctoral Fellow in International Humanities with the Department of Music at Brown University. Her PhD thesis, completed in Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University, was based on ethnographic work between 2013 and 2019 at community-studios in Upstate New York, Pittsburgh, PA, Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and a hip hop education program in Brooklyn, NY. More broadly, her academic work explores the politics of community-studios, music production, recording services and education, and her creative work as an Afrofuturist rapper and producer - under the moniker Sammus - focuses primarily on black feminist politics and Afrodiasporic identities as they are negotiated from behind and in front of the screens that govern modern life.
