Welcome back to the NextGen Humanities Podcast
This time around we’re talking about the black liberation movements throughout the 20th century and beyond the borders of the United States.
It’s a great pleasure to be able to introduce Wendell Adjetey (A-jay-tay), Assistant Professor of History at McGill University in Montreal. He completed his PhD at Yale University and then was a fellow at Harvard University’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and a lecturer in the Department of History. Dr. Adjetey’s research has garnered many prizes and fellowships.
In addition to his scholarly work, he has written articles for The Washington Post, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, The Walrus, and The National Post.
Wendell Adjetey is a premiere scholar who has done the dirty work in the archives to uncover untold stories about the history of black liberation movements and how the US and Canadian governments worked to undermine them. He’s bringing a wealth of new information together to form a truly North American story, rather than one that’s limited by the confines of the United States.
His website is linked above at his name where you can find more of his publications.
Keep an eye out for his upcoming book.
