Black Students at Georgetown and the Legacy of Slavery
In this podcast conducted in the format of a Radio Show, Georgetown students Juliette Browne (GU '18) and Ndeye Ndiaye (GU '18), address the impact of slavery on the legacy of education inequality and college preparedness in black communities. The podcast focuses on the descendants of the GU 272, and what can be done to ameliorate and support the education of descendants, for those who choose to attend Georgetown and for those who do not. Browne and Ndiaye interview descendant Jessica “Millie” Tilson on her perspective on ways Georgetown can ensure or at least try to ensure that members of the descendant community will be prepared and ready to attend Georgetown and how Georgetown can help Black students in general feel prepared. Browne and Ndiaye conclude their podcast by sharing personal experiences and their ideas on what steps Georgetown can take to support descendants who choose to attend and better support Black students in general as they enter and learn at Georgetown.
