The Blue Record Podcast

Blue Record Brand Art The Blue Record is the official podcast for Spelman College run by the Social Justice Fellowship Program. It is a collegiate podcast hosted by the women of Spelman College. The mission of the podcast is to critique counterproductive ideologies and discourses that interrupt the mobility of Black women in society. Paying homage to Ida B Wells’ groundbreaking “Red Record," the "Blue Record" will continue to carry the torch of social justice integrity and inquiry through the authentic voices of collegiate Black women. The goal of the Blue Record is to initiate and continue dialogue on intersectional topics through a Black feminist lens. 

As this is a social justice initiative, one of the key aspects of the podcast is utilizing the rich content in the Spelman Archives to incorporate the voices of past students into the conversations we host on the podcast. Additionally, we provide a “book list” for each episode on our website to cite the individuals we are in conversation with and encourage our listeners to explore the topic discussed in depth. From the hosts to the production team, the Blue Record is creatively constructed and produced by Black collegiate women. The Blue Record podcast is housed in Laura Spelman, the Social Justice residence building at Spelman College.

The Blue Record Podcast was established and founded by Social Justice Fellow Kayla Smith, C'2021, and the founding team of the podcast. The podcast produces content year-round, and typically releases new episodes on a monthly basis. To join the podcast team, look out for an email from the Social Justice program for a new member application for either a position or an internship — both require an academic term commitment.
