Protegé Podcast with Rory Verrett

Princeton Professor Imani Perry Remains Undefeated

One recipe for black girl magic: one Yale degree, a JD and PhD from Harvard, a professorship at Princeton, scholarly works on race and American history, managing both Lupus and Graves’ disease, and raising two children as a divorced mother. On this week’s Protégé Podcast, I have a revealing conversation with superstar African-American studies professor Dr. Imani Perry. We talk about making race and legal scholarship practically relevant for people of color, the importance of defining excellence on your own terms, and what we’ve both learned from our unforgettable interactions with police.
