The Baobab Project
“Wisdom is like a baobab tree; no one individual can embrace it” ~ African Proverb
In 2021 the Black Student Support Office launched a podcast series to amplify the Black perspectives at Mount Saint Vincent University. “The series is called the Baobab Project in recognition of the wisdom members of the African/Black community use to help create a stronger MSVU community. Under the ‘branches of the baobab tree’ we discuss lived experiences that help to build a stronger MSVU community for all.”
Season One explores the topics such of Black hair, accessibility, food, and much more. The Black Student Support Office plans to commence recording episodes for Season Two in 2023. A number of MSVU students and staff have worked on these podcast over the past year and we welcome you to get involved—please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the podcast series and how you can participate.
