Come explore the lives of Black people, the famous, the everyday, the extraordinary and hear their stories that speak volumes of our heritage. As we near the end of Black History Month, we'll listen to the stories of NAACP President Ben Jealous, noted historian and African American scholar John Hope Franklin, Los Angeles based Ellaraino, Mortician Sam Reed and Shoe Shine boy turned teacher Earl Reynolds, Jr.
Black History IS American History.
They are our mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters. They share stories of our dreams and aspirations. They are the stories that are archived at StoryCorps, the national project capturing stories of Americans of all stripes, sizes and colors.
They are the stories that make our country rich in diversity, deep in culture, and dedicated to the courage and commitment of a whole race of people.
Then we'll close our show with a heartwarming rendition of the "Black National Anthem" Lift Every Voice and Sing, performed by the Chicago Children's Choir.
Black History IS American History.
Enjoy today's show.
Celebrate Black History Every Day. Every Month. Every Year.
