Return to The Nostalgia Trap

I recently dialed in to the podcast The Nostalgia Trap to discuss my new book The Blackademic Life, the state of academia, and many other topics. I was a guest on the podcast way back in 2014, so it was great to catch up with my CUNY Graduate Center colleague David Parsons and chop it up about life on the other side of graduate school.

Nostalgia Trap – Episode 175 – The Blackademic Life w/ Lavelle Porter 

 

The Blackademic Life – Coming soon!

It’s really real now. Thank you to all of you who have pre-ordered the book and waited patiently for the roll-out. Pre-ordered copies should start shipping by the end of the week. Also, it looks like the Kindle price has been temporarily lowered, so you should jump on that if you feel so inclined.

I’ll be reading at McNally Jackson Books in SoHo on November 14, with my CUNY colleague Dr. Debarati Biswas. Books will be available at the reading!  RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-blackademic-life-tickets-64987959737
