Black Matter

Black Matter

Dr. Chaz Antoine Barracks, UR and Bonner Scholar alum, was the CCE's first Community-Engaged Scholar-in-Residence. His podcast Black Matter is an ongoing oral history project that centers Black femmes and creatives of color who engage in interdisciplinary work that pushes past common understandings held about Black people/people of color.

During his residency with the CCE in Spring 2021, Dr. Barracks released a five-episode Black Matter segment with members of the UR Black Student Coalition at the University of Richmond.

The series followed debate and protest about the names of Robert Ryland and Douglas Southall Freeman on campus buildings that is still ongoing.
