72. From Precocious to the Pulitzer with Dr. Marcia Chatelain

Dr. Marcia Chatelain is a professor of History and African American Studies at Georgetown University and the author of two books: South Side Girls: Growing Up in the Great Migration, and the Pulitzer Prize winning Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America.

In this episode, we first learn from Dr. Chatelain about her upbringing in Chicago – all the books she could get her hands on, and all the McDonald’s she could enjoy. Although Super Size Me convinced her to give up the Golden Arches for good in 2005, her explorations of gender, race, and capitalism in American history inspired her instant classic book about McDonald’s years later.

Class is in session with Dr. Chatelain as she shares insights on the changing landscape of Black America!
