Black in Boston

A black woman and a black man from the south give our perspective on pursuing advanced degrees, moving away from home, and life in a new space. We plan to talk about a wide variety of topics and issues from what’s in the news to what’s happening in pop culture from our perspective, backed by research and fact. We plan to explore Boston and experience the city in its authenticity for its art, culture, and food as a way to build community and make a new home. This podcast was created by Brandi Griffin and Terrence Johnson.
