Mapping Black America

February 4th is Rosa Parks Day. In his recently released episode of No Jargon, Hunter discusses the geography of race in the United States and the many women of color who led the way in the fight against racial segregation in America.

In this episode, Professor Marcus Anthony Hunter explores the geography of the Black American experience and gives historical context to Black politics and the Black Lives Matter movement. Hunter is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Los Angeles.
