On the next Another View we talk with scholar Rashad Shabazz, author of "Spatializing Blackness: Architectures of Confinement and Black Masculinity in Chicago" - a fascinating look at how carceral power operates within African American communities. Using history, geography, race and gender studies, Shabazz explains the racialization of space, the role of containment in subordinating African Americans, the politics of mobility under conditions of alledged freedom and the ways Black men cope with, and resist, spacial containment. It's a study of racism through a different lens. Join us for this thought provoking discussion on the next Another View, Friday, January 6 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us on this blog!

THE MOVIE “HIDDEN FIGURES” LOOKS AT HOW THREE AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN IMPACTED NASA AND THE SPACE PROGRAM. THE WOMEN PUSHED PAST RACIAL DISCRIMINATION AND SEXISM IN THE WORKPLACE
TO TAKE THEIR PLACE IN AMERICAN HISTORY. BUT WHILE THE MOVIE FOCUSES ON JUST THREE WOMEN, THERE WERE DOZENS OF BLACK WOMEN USING THEIR MATH SKILLS TO ENSURE NASA CONTINUED TO SOAR! OUR LISA GODLEY SAT DOWN WITH AEROSPACE ENGINEER AND MATHEMATICIAN, CHRISTIAN DARDEN ABOUT HER JOURNEY AS ONE OF NASA’S HUMAN COMPUTERS.
