Episode 89: Tales By Moonlight: Storytelling for Youths and Elders in a Historically Black Community with Bukky Akinwale


Episode 89 is special for me as I get to discuss my favourite thesis of all time written by Bukky Akinwale, a grad student at the University of North Texas. Bukky presented this work to a standing ovation at the 2022 Black Applied Behavior Analysts conference. In her thesis, she teaches two wonderful girls, Maliyha and Chevelle, to request, listen and recount stories from Ms. Alma Clark, a 94-year-old Elder and one of the last surviving residents of Quakertown. Quakertown was a thriving community that formerly enslaved people established in Denton, Texas after Juneteenth until 1921 when the White community voted to turn Quakertown into a municipal park.
