Degrees Of Justice

Tested Podcast logo

Host Leoneda Inge talks with Professor Elan Hope of NC State University about her research of youth activism, and how racism has prompted young people to act.

It’s graduation season across the country. And in the South, that means thousands of students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities will be heading out into the world, and many will try to change it for the better.

More than 80% of young Black people report they engaged in some form of social justice activism in the last year, according to research conducted by Elan Hope of NC State University. Hope is a co-author of the study, "Relations Between Racial Stress and Critical Consciousness for Black Adolescents."

Leoneda Inge is WUNC’s race and southern culture reporter, the first public radio journalist in the South to hold such a position. She also is co-host of the podcast Tested and host of the special podcast series, PAULI. Leoneda is the recipient of numerous awards from AP, RTDNA and NABJ. She’s been a reporting fellow in Berlin and Tokyo. You can follow her on Twitter @LeonedaInge.
