On this episode, Ashley and Casey talk with educator, organizer, and activist Dr. Shemariah Arki, professor and interim director for the Center of Pan-African Studies at Kent State University. Dr. Arki discusses the many organizations they are involved in with and challenges the listener to think of how civic engagement is affected by power structures, especially through the perspective of historically marginalized and minoritized communities.
