In the second week of Black History Month, we chat with historian Dr. Melissa Graboyes of the University of Oregon. She talks with us about her recently published book, The Experiment Must Continue: Medical Research and Ethics in East Africa, 1940–2014.
During the interview, we talk about the summer study abroad program to learn Swahili in Zanzibar that Dr. Graboyes co-directs. The program is run through the University of Oregon, but is open to students enrolled at other colleges and universities, too. There are a few spaces left, and you can learn more about the program here. Our conversation with Dr. Melissa Graboyes begins at 5:05.
Ahead of Valentine’s Day, we play singer songwriter Nicole Musoni’s beautiful song “Runaway Love” at the end of this week’s episode. You can find her on SoundCloud and YouTube and follow her on Twitter at @NicoleMusoni. The song begins at 23:23.
