The Black Language Podcast

Anansa Benbow

Linguistics allows us to see the beauty, rawness, and complicatedness in what it means to be human. This is a podcast dedicated to talking about Black people and our languages, and the beauty, rawness, and complicatedness of our various realities. Have you ever wondered why your cousins up north or down south talk differently? Or why your teacher won't let you say "ain't" or "aks"(ask)? Were you ever confused at why someone kept switching between English and Spanish at the bodega? Have you wondered why we change our slang as soon as the mainstream uses it? If you've ever asked yourself any of these questions, this is the podcast for you.
