Tune in for a new episode of The Graduates as we speak with Lashon Daley in the Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies! Lashon's research focuses on early African-American literature and folk tales, and how the black community creates an understanding of what it means to be black. In the interview, Lashon talks about her graduate work studying Br'er Rabbit, the famous literary figure, as well as her experience as a children's author. Lashon's first play, The Carter Sisters, is debuting on September 13th in Dwinelle Hall.

The Graduates, featuring graduate student research at Cal, is broadcast every other Tuesday on KALX 90.7 FM. Past episodes are available to listen and download free on iTunes or online. The Graduates is hosted by Tesla Monson, postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Integrative Biology.
