[This episode originally aired June 2020.] Once upon a time, there was a girl whose little voice grew to make a big difference. Her name was Oprah. When Oprah won a beauty pageant, a local radio invited her to the studio to realize her dream of becoming a broadcast journalist. But it wasn’t easy. Oprah did not fit into the image that media titans wanted at the time. Nevertheless, she charmed audiences with her inner strength and generosity. And as Oprah’s fame grew, she used her platform to take care of others. She built libraries, started scholarships, and founded schools. For decades, Oprah’s empathetic, authentic stories have helped others open up about their own.

Get to Know Dana King

2022-11-0306:231

[This episode original aired November 2020.] Meet Dana King! She’s a former broadcast journalist turned sculptor who believes in the power of commemorative art. She brought us the amazing story of Edmonia Lewis, a Black, female sculptor who lived and worked in the late 1800’s in America and Europe. In this interview Dana tells us why she is so passionate about her work and the moment she KNEW she was a sculptor.
[This episode originally aired in November, 2020]. On this episode we meet Edmonia Wildfire Lewis, a talented American sculptor who emigrated to Europe to push her art to the next level! As a Black female sculptor in the 19th century she blazed a trail through the world of art and created works of enormous magnitude. Though some of her work has been lost to history, her contributions to art and sculpture will never be forgotten! About the Narrator Dana King is a classical figurative sculptor who believes in the power of commemorative art. She loves the art of sculpture because it allows people to shape stories, share memories and determine how they are remembered. Her sculptures aim to link generations by revealing common threads: shared values, experiences, and aspirations because, she believes, they help those alive today compare and contrast their world with that of social pioneers, both enslaved and free, whose sacrifices, courage and commitment to excellence helped create modern society. She hopes you see yourself and those you love in her work!    Credits This podcast is a production of Rebel Girls and Boom Integrated, a division of John Marshall Media.

I love listening to these podcasts with my daughter at bedtime. However, the commercial break in the middle of the show is very jarring and breaks the spell these stores cast. i really wish the ads would run at the beginning and/or end of the episodes.
