The Project STAND podcast: A Blueprint, is a conversation with student activists, memory workers, archivists, artists, historians, and scholars, that intersect with the creation, documentation, advocacy, archiving, and preservation of stories relating to the activism and organizing within Black and Brown communities and other marginalized student populations. We are having honest conversations where voices are sharing their fears, joys, challenges, hopes, plans, policies, and visions for liberation, a blueprint for repair, an archive that centers their voice.
Thanks for listening!
