Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary

Join the Klau Institute for Civil and Human Rights as Sonja Lanehart discusses the newly released Oxford Dictionary of African American English. Laneheart is professor of linguistics at the University of Arizona. Her scholarship focuses on language and education in African American communities; language and identity; sociolinguistics and language variation. Particularly interested in pushing the boundaries of research in variation to be more diverse, inclusive, and intersectional, her research was featured in The Oxford Handbook of African American Language.
