It's back to school, with the teacher everyone wishes they'd had. An educator in Memphis, David Jamison gained national attention for his unorthodox methods. He's using his national platform to shake up the way we think about education as a champion for students and men (especially men of color) in the classroom. A recent survivor of COVID-19, his insights into anxiety, fatherlessness, and education are stunning. He's an utterly inspiring man, actively changing the next generation.

False Divisions: David Jamison on Race (Episode 60)
This episode’s featured guest is David Jamison, Assistant Professor of History at Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, FL. His doctorate is in African Diaspora history and his dissertation was on slave resistance during the colonial era. His mission is to inspire others to learn about, reanalyze, and deconstruct our ideas about race. The racial categories we’ve been born into believing in have not existed since the beginning of time, but only for about 400 years. Listen in to David’s conversation with Robin Renée about how we have learned to divide ourselves to our own detriment and how we may begin to question racial categories and their assumptions. David Jamison’s approach is as welcoming as his ideas are challenging.
