Passing the Mic!

Introducing Passing the Mic, The Black Community Services Center's podcast! We are turning 55 this year! We created “Passing the Mic!” to pay homage to the alumni, faculty, and staff who shaped the Black community of Stanford through their commitment to the Black Community Services Center. We explore the courage and audacity our guests needed to ensure the BCSC is still here 55 years after "Take Back the Mic" and the demands that gave birth to our center, and the energy needed to ensure our future.
