On the new episode of the Let’s Talk STEM with Dr. Calvin Mackie podcast, the host and his guest, Dr. Carlotta Berry, an Electrical and Computer Engineering professor, provide a peek behind the curtain at the challenges faced by African American engineering professors working at predominantly white higher education institutions. The engaging conversation between the two highly acclaimed engineering professors provides a fresh and earnest perspective of being Black in academia in the age of Black Lives Matters and Generation X, and the joys and pressures that come with it.
Further, Dr. Mackie and Dr. Berry discuss the importance of Black representation in higher academia, specifically, the ways we can use modern tools, practices and support groups to normalize the representation of Black professors, educators and scientists, and provide diverse students with the support needed to thrive.
