Black Excellence Podcast Series

In February 2022, the “28 Days of Black Excellence” podcast series launched to celebrate Black History Month at UIC. Each day brought a powerful new episode featuring inspiring stories from students, faculty, staff, and community members. The impact wasn’t limited to those 28 days; the podcast resonated with the campus community and was recently listed as number two on the FeedSpot for Podcasters ranking of “10 Best Illinois Black Podcasts.” Fueled by this enthusiastic response, the Black Excellence series has continued with seven more episodes in 2022, two in 2023, and one so far in 2024.
