ELECTORETTE PODCAST | EPISODE FIFTY-ONR

ME

In this episode, Nicole Fleetwood, an Associate Professor in the Department of American Studies at Rutgers University and Graduate Faculty in the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, discusses her moving essay titled "Raising a Black Boy Not to Be Afraid: On the Casual Street Violence of Whiteness." The essay explores an experience her son had while walking to school alone in New York City. We explore the emotions, anxieties, and fears of young black boys in a country that is often hostile to their existence, as well as, what it's like to parent a brown or black child in America.
