The Department of Black Studies takes great pride in our faculty, staff, students, and alumni. We have an amazing group of individuals in our space that are doing hard work at the University and beyond. Here you will find various interviews conducted throughout the years. We talk everything from personal, professional, and academic life to the hard realities facing the city of Chicago. More importantly, we get an inside look at how our faculty and staff are creating positive impacts on students at UIC and residents of the city.
