In our second in a series of videos for We Are CJC and Black History Month, we feature Journalism Assistant Professor Rachel Grant sharing her thoughts about being a Black woman in academia.
“I am the sixth Black woman to graduate [with a PhD] from the Missouri School of Journalism. I say that because we think that access to education has expanded but to exist in these spaces and have access to higher institutions is still scarce…To teach and be a Black academic is a privilege and an honor.”
