Archiving and heritage with Rianna Walcott

Season 1, Ep. 2

Is social media a kind of archive? How does colonialism affect the way things are presented? What is it like navigating academia as a Black woman?

In this episode, Benin discusses heritage, archives, in jokes and Black Twitter with the fabulous Rianna Walcott. Rianna is a PhD candidate at Kings College London researching Black women's identity formation in digital spaces, author of the Colour of Madness and co-founder of Project Myopia.
