Conversation Topic:

Cory Gooding, PhD, assistant professor of political science and international relations, and Channon Miller, PhD, assistant professor of history, will delve into the history of The Black Freedom Struggle and discuss the aims and goals of the Movement for Black Lives. They will also touch on the important topics of systemic racism, reimaging historical symbols and statues, differences between revolution and reform and implications for the November election. 


Dr. Gooding teaches courses in American Politics and racial and ethnic politics. His research explores the impact of racial identity on political engagement. Currently, Dr. Gooding is developing a book manuscript that examines group-based identity, socio-political attitudes and political engagement among Afro-Caribbeans in the United States during the Barack Obama administration.

Dr. Miller is an interdisciplinary Americanist and Historian that writes and teaches across various fields including African American History and Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Critical Race and Gender Theory, and African Diaspora Studies.
