Show Notes

In this episode I welcome Hiram Smith up on the front porch. Hiram is a professor of Spanish and Linguistics at Bucknell University here in central PA. We discuss his youth as an "Army Brat" and the various places that he lived growing up. We also discuss African-American-English and its history within the American story as well as an honest and enlightening discussion on the "N-Word." We close the interview with our normal 10 quick questions which get sidetracked by a quick discussion on the black perspective in movies.
