Signs of the Times #47: What does it mean to be Black@ND?
Black@ND is a YouTube show and podcast that discusses the experiences of Notre Dame’s African American students, current and alumni, and the steps taken to survive in a community that lacks representation of color. Episodes cover topics such as stereotyping Black men as athletes, campus policing, how whites can become allies, and interviews with the Black pioneers that paved the way for current ND students. Emorja Roberson, creator and co-host of the show, is the first African-American to graduate with a Master of Sacred Music in Vocal Performance from Notre Dame and is currently pursuing his Doctorate in Musical Arts to study Choral Conducting with a focus in African-American repertoire. The Center for Social Concerns now serves as the academic home for the Black@ND podcast.
