Season 14 of ’Left of Black’ Launches Oct. 19

Mark Anthony Neal’s web series opens with conversation with Jasmine Cobb on Black hair

In an upcoming episode of "Left of Black," Mark Anthony Neal interviews Duke alumna Thema Bryant, a leading clinical psychologist.

Furthermore, this season welcomes the arrival of Jakiah Glass, the newest addition to the Left of Black production team. Glass, a recent mass communications graduate from North Carolina Central University, now serves as the assistant editor for the series.

Her affiliation with the Franklin Humanities Institute began with the Charmaine McKissick-Melton Communications Fellowship, a partnership between Duke and NCCU that targets undergraduate mass communications students.

Undergraduate Duke and UNC students should be on the lookout for a new course offering related to the Left of Black production process, taught by Neal. More information about the course will soon be announced.
