In 1943, Abe Meeropol wrote lyrics to “The House I Live In,” a song that came to symbolize both American anti-oppression struggles and American patriotism. Meeropol was also the author of “Strange Fruit,” the anti-lynching song made famous by Billie Holiday. Tensions between cultural centeredness, anti-oppression struggle and American exceptionalism define the limits and possibilities within and outside of America. This conversation led by Dr. Greg Carr will consider how exploring these tensions through lenses crafted from African American experiences can help educators recenter our teaching and learning work.
Dr. Greg Carr is Associate Professor of Africana Studies and Chair of the Department of Afro-American Studies at Howard University and Adjunct Faculty at the Howard School of Law.
