"There was a time when Elaine Richardson was one of 'the Negroes everybody pointed to as the Negroes you didn't want to become.'" This is a statement that was used to reference our guest who is now a "Professor of Literacy Studies in the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University". She "is focused on literacy education of African American and African diasporic people, and specializes in critical language and literacy education for social equality." She also "belongs to a global network of Hiphop activist-educators for social transformation. Richardson founded The Ohio State University Hiphop Literacies Conference and the SistaFriends Afterschool Program in 2011 (currently serving sixth to eighth grade girls at Sherwood Middle school)." What is even more important about her is, she "uses her story of recovery from human trafficking and drugs to becoming an award winning PhD and recording artist to motivate others." Join us as we talk to the author of "PhD to PH.D.: How Education Saved My Life", Dr. Elaine Richardson aka "Dr. E".
