“In this series, we ask acclaimed authors to answer five questions about their book. This week’s featured author is Lavelle Porter . Porter is Assistant Professor of English at New York City College of Technology, CUNY. His book is The Blackademic Life: Academic Fiction, Higher Education, and the Black Intellectual .”
Here is the video of my conversation with Mark Anthony Neal on Left of Black about The Blackademic Life.
It was a pleasure to speak with Mark Anthony Neal for an episode of Left of Black. I’ve been watching the show for a while, and he’s interviewed some great people, so I was excited to get the invitation to come on and talk about The Blackademic Life. The Season 11 episode will be posted soon.
I did an interview about The Blackademic Life with Prof. Patricia A. Matthew for Los Angeles Review of Books. Check it out!
I really enjoyed this conversation with Matt Miller (and Karen Karbiener). You can view it now on YouTube.
