On October 20 the XPN Morning Show with Michaela Majoun featured an interview with Dr. Tukufu Zuberi, the Lasry Family Professor of Race Relations at the University of Pennsylvania. Their conversation focused on Dr. Zuberi’s work as host of the PBS series “History Detectives,” a role he has filled for nearly ten years. After an initial bout of apprehension, Dr. Zuberi says, he soon found the show to be an opportunity to expand the boundaries of his teaching. As he puts it, “Now, rather than just focusing on the 25 to 200 students in my class, I can speak to millions of Americans.”
