Dr. Malik Boykin, aka Malik Starx, is the first Black professor in the Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences (CLPS) at Brown University. He is also a hip-hop artist and we feature his song “Dancing for Freedom,” a jazzy, Afro-Carribbean single, early in the show. An insight is a beautiful thing . . . someone once described it as holding a candle in a dark room and then suddenly the lights are turned on. I am grateful to have gained some new insights that will stick with me as a result of this conversation. Dr. Boykin and I discuss Black America, and reflect on myths and research about Black America (especially as found in the 2020 book From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the Twenty-First Century by William Darity and Kirsten Mullen) . Throughout the episode Dr. Boykin shares heartwarming stories, including his strategy for raising his GRE (Graduate Record Exam) score by 550 points in about 100 days.
