Care in the Time of Corona: An Interview with Sociologist Taura Taylor

A Black elderly mother and daughter in their Sunday best. The mother is wearing a blue suit with a skirt, and the daughter is wearing a yellow suit with a skirt.

This episode of The Shape of Care podcast features sociologist Taura Taylor, a Visiting Lecturer at Georgia State University who teaches about race and resilience. Taylor speaks about her experience as a caregiver to her mother and about the culture of caregiving in African-American families.

“Taura talks about the culture of caregiving in her family, and how that has influenced choices she has made. She speaks candidly and with humor about the challenges of supporting her mother, while juggling her own teaching schedule, and how that routine has changed during the pandemic.”
