Cloud9 is a podcast produced by Baha’i Teachings. Its aim is to feature interviews with artists and discuss what inspires them to make a positive contribution to the world. In this episode, Baha’i Teachings’ arts editor Shadi Toloui-Wallace interviews Dr Layli Maparyan, a psychologist who is currently the Executive Director of the Wellesley Centers for Women and Professor of Africana Studies at Wellesley College. Her research is primarily focused on social identity, Womanism, and African and Indigenous cosmology. She has also published three ground-breaking books on these subjects. In this episode we ask Professor Maparyan about the effects of Confederate monuments on the psyches of people of African descent.
