Dr. Boykin and I discuss Black America, and reflect on myths and research about Black America (especially as found in the 2020 book From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the Twenty-First Century by William Darity and Kirsten Mullen).   Throughout the episode Dr. Boykin shares heartwarming stories, including his strategy for raising his GRE (Graduate Record Exam) score by 550 points in about 100 days. Malik Boykin, aka Malik Starx, is the first Black professor in the Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences (CLPS) at Brown University.  He is also a hip-hop artist and we feature his song “Dancing for Freedom,” a jazzy, Afro-Carribbean single, early in the show.  Learn more about Dr. Malik Boykin at https://www.boykinlab.com , https://www.malikstarx.com)
