The Eclectic Inclusion Podcast by Dr. Amer F. Ahmed

In our polarizing times, many of the greatest challenges in creating a more equitable and just world stems from our lack of understanding of one another. ‘Eclectic Inclusion’ features diverse and unique voices who have unlocked their own potential to have a meaningful impact on others through art, education and activism. Each person will share how their unique backgrounds and experiences have shaped their journey to become change-agents for a more inclusive world. All of these individuals are educators and will discuss their perspectives on inclusive teaching and learning.

What’s CODE SWITCH? It’s the fearless conversations about race that you’ve been waiting for! Hosted by journalists of color, our podcast tackles the subject of race head-on.

How to be American: The history of immigration and migration from Apple Podcasts

These American stories are not in your standard history book. History tends to be reduced to key moments and celebrated names, and what’s often overlooked are the stories of the ordinary people, both past and present, who have lived through journeys of immigration and migration…the people who have shaped what it means to be and to become American. How To Be American is a podcast by the Tenement Museum where from New York’s Lower East Side, we explore the history of immigration and migration in America. We share the stories of migrants and refugees, and everyone in-between. And we examine why so many important events in our history have unfolded around issues of immigration and national identity. This is the past, present, and future of becoming American.
