Podcast: Race Scholar Dr. Iheoma Iruka

As a child, Iheoma Iruka bounced between the United States and Nigeria, struggling to find a place to belong. Today, she is a one of the foremost scholars on race and young children, in particular young Black boys. But she is also a mother to young children. How does she reconcile being an expert on race and young children with the reality of being a regular, fallible parent?

In this episode, we talk to Dr. Iheoma Iruka, creative research officer at HighScope Educational Research Foundation about finding her identity in childhood, parenting, and why gap gazing is a problem in academia.
