Apple Podcasts | Android | Spotify | Google Podcasts | Email | RSS

For the past few months at Heterodox Academy, we’ve been focusing on the contributions of Black scholars, the diversity of perspectives among them, and the tensions around representation in institutions of higher learning. In this episode, we bring to you Randall Kennedy, Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, and his blog piece “On the Authority of Experience in Black thought.”  To engage deeper with Kennedy’s ideas, check out our related posts “To be Sensible About Race is ‘Not Blaming the Victim’” by John McWhorter, “Arguments for and Against Capitalism in the Black Intellectual Tradition” by Fabio Rojas, and “The Importance of Intrapersonal Empowerment in American Race Race Relations” by Erec Smith. For comments and questions email This episode was hosted by Zach Rausch. The artwork was inspired by Randall’s piece and was created by Lexi Polokoff.
