Activism Through Scholarship! Let’s GO!

I am proud to announce that I am joining the team of “Ignorant Intellectual,” where scholars unite to bring pertinent information to the masses! I am blessed to be a contributor to the first edition of this exciting new publication, which is set to arrive fall 2014! The creator of “Ignorant Intellectual” is Ms. Ashley Daniels, a Howard University Ph.D. student pursuing a doctoral degree in Political Science. According to Daniels she was inspired to create this publication due an overall need for more engaging conversations on behalf of Black scholars stating “While Black intellectuals sit in the comfort of our respective academies, it seems that we are steadily losing touch with the very people we claim we want to help.” This publication will discuss issues including politics, education, social issues and health. The major purpose will be to solve and issues pertinent to the Black community by bridging the information gap between various classes of people.  Be on the look out for the “Ignorant Intellectual” and my article “A Different World: The Miseducation of HBCU Disrespect” soon! I’ll keep you posted!

CARTER™ x Dr. Ashley N. Roberston, Curator/Director, Bethune-Cookman University Come Together

Ashley N. Robertson, Ph.D. is a curator and museum director at the Mary McLeod Bethune Foundation on the campus of Bethune-Cookman University. She also teaches African American History for the history department of B-CU.

One day while surfing the web for new class material Dr. Robertson found CARTER™, and was very impressed. So much, that she began to use CARTER™ as a resource to help her students not only grasp historical information but also to stay abreast of current events and issues affecting the Black community.

CARTER™ x Dr. Robertson has now joined forces to create a quarterly newspaper geared towards professors and students at other HBCU, that will empower and entertain students about our glorious past and prosperous future…

“I would suggest that any professor use this valuable tool in their classroom, because it speaks the language of our students and gives us a great way to communicate what the book may not be able to… Dr. Carter G. Woodson would be proud of where CARTER™ is going!” – Ashley N. Robertson, Ph.D.
