E016: Black women in education with April-Louise Pennant

What does it mean to be a Black woman in the English education system? Special guest April-Louise Pennant talks about why she is researching the educational experiences of Black women, how those women have negotiated racism and sexism in schools and universities, and why it is important that those experiences are heard. Chantelle tells us about her activist work on getting more Black students to do PhDs, and we pull apart the reasons behind the media obsession with ‘grade inflation’. As usual, we’re ranty, we’re sweary, and we’re having a good time!
